Van Oord charters Seajacks Scylla for European offshore wind project

Eneti Inc. announced today that Seajacks UK Limited, its wholly-owned subsidiary, has signed a contract with Dutch marine contractor Van Oord for the charter of their installation vessel Seajacks Scylla.

Seajacks Scylla is the largest and most capable vessel in the Seajacks fleet. The vessel is currently employed through 2022 in Taiwan where it is installing wind turbines on Ørsted’s Greater Changhua Offshore Wind Farm. The vessel will move to Europe upon completion.

The firm charter duration of the Van Oord contract will generate approximately $60 million of revenue in 2023, Eneti said.

Arnoud Kuis, Managing Director, Van Oord Offshore Wind, says:

“We are delighted with this constructive cooperation with Seajacks. This cooperation gives us the ability to realise our growth ambitions in the offshore wind market both in, and outside, Europe.”

Blair Ainslie, CEO of Seajacks, says:

“All of us here at Seajacks UK are once again thrilled to be working alongside Van Oord. The Scylla was previously chartered by Van Oord in 2019 to install monopile and transition pieces at the Deutsche Bucht Offshore Wind Farm in Germany. We had a positive experience there, and we look forward to another safe and efficient installation project.”

Seajacks Scylla is one of 5 GustoMSC designed vessels owned and operated by Seajacks UK. The other installation vessels are Seajacks Kraken, Seajacks Leviathan, Seajacks Hydra and Seajacks Zaratan. Source: Eneti Image: Seajacks
