Harwich welcome largest jack-up ship

May 17 - Harwich International Port in the UK has welcomed the maiden call of MPI Adventure in readiness for its participation in operations at the London Array offshore wind farm project.

The vessel, which arrived from a shipyard in China, is 19,533 tonnes and by far the largest wind turbine installation vessel to enter the port to date. The initial call is a trial berthing prior to installation operations for offshore wind turbines commencing in a few months' time.

The vessel will join Sea Worker which is already installing the towers that will support the turbines for the London Array project.

David Gledhill, chief executive officer for Hutchison Ports (UK) Ltd, which owns Harwich International Port, commented: "We are pleased to welcome the MPI Adventure, whose call is further evidence of the crucial role played by Harwich International Port in the development of the offshore renewables sector. Having been involved in both theGunfleet SandsThanet and Greater Gabbard projects, we are proud to continue our sterling record within this exciting industry."

The London Array wind farm commenced operations from Harwich in March and will continue with Phase 1 of the project, which represents 175 turbines, and is due to be completed at the end of 2012.
