Seaway Heavy Lifting's crane vessel Oleg Strashnov is currently on the East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm for the installation of the project's offshore substation topside.

The topside, dubbed Andalusia II, was constructed by Navantia at its facility in the shipyard of Puerto Real, Spain. It departed aboard a transportation on the 6th August.

With a total of 102 Siemens SWT-7.0-154 direct-drive wind turbines, the East Anglia ONE wind farm will have a total capacity of 714MW. Once operational, expected in 2020, it will supply green energy to 500,000 households.

Last month Van Oord started its campaign to install jackets at East Anglia ONE. The wind farm’s 102 three-legged jacket foundations will be installed in water depths up to 55m in the southern North Sea, located 45km southeast of Lowestoft, UK.

The £2.5bn East Anglia ONE wind farm is the first of four projects in the East Anglia region to begin construction. It is being realised solely by ScottishPower Renewables. The 714MW array will feature 102 SWT-7.0-154 direct-drive wind turbines, each with a capacity of 7MW.

Full commissioning is scheduled for 2020 and the project is expected to meet the energy demands of 500,000 British households annually.
