December 4 - Seaway Heavy Lifting has been awarded the transportation and installation contract for the Sandbank substation by Bladt Industries.

The substation platform, which consists of a jacket, skirt piles and deck, will be installed at the Sandbank offshore wind farm, located approximately 100 km northwest of the island Sylt in the German part of the North Sea.

Installation is expected to take place in 2016, using Seaway Heavy Lifting's crane vessel Stanislav Yudin, which has a 2,500-tonne capacity revolving crane.

Once installed, the substation will collect electricity from the individual wind turbines and convert it to a higher voltage.
