The main installation contractor for the Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Limited project, Seaway Heavy Lifting awarded Franklin Offshore Europe BV the contract for production of 7 boatlandings (8 to 9 mTon each). The scope consisted of making the workshop drawings, purchase of materials, fabrication and NDE and finally blasting and painting.
Within a time span of 6 weeks the whole scope was realized and the boatlandings were delivered in batches to the client, who could install these boatlandings on time onboard their chartered barges.
The £2.6bn Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Ltd (BOWL) is owned by SSE (40%), Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) (35%) and Red Rock Power Limited (25%) and reached Financial Close on 23 May 2016. The project will be one of the largest private investments ever made in Scottish infrastructure.
