Humber Gateway Substation contract
Mon, 03 November 2014
MPI Offshore has announced that its wind-turbine-installation vessel, ‘MPI Adventure’, has successfully completed installation of the Humber Gateway Substation, following a very efficient transportation and installation period.
This contract, which was undertaken for E.ON, involved the load out and installation of a total of 2,508 tonnes of equipment. According to MPI Offshore the project proved to be both challenging and exciting. Early concepts of a modular build took shape late in 2011, with the building-block approach structured around the lift-and-Installation capacities of MPI Adventure. Final preparations and the phased load-out on to MPI Adventure were undertaken from multiple ports, involving many subcontractors, such as drillers, grouters, scaffolders, welders and painters.
MPI reports that it has been complimented by E.ON on the overall high level of performance on this project.
