Veja Mate Offshore Project is pleased to announce the installation of its Offshore Substation (OSS) delivered by FICG. Just last week the OSS topside left Hoboken Belgium and sailed-away to Eemshaven where it was picked up a few days later by Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC). It joined the OSS jacket which had left Vlissingen Netherlands to arrive at the Veja Mate Offshore Site after a three-day journey.
Sahand A Hosseini, Senior Project Manager - OSS, said “Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our staff, FICG and HMC, the installation went like clockwork from start to finish.”
Veja Mate began construction in April 2015 and remains on schedule; the next activity planned is the installation of its inter array cables, which is set to begin on October 1st.
Iemants, along with other consortium partners Engie Fabricom and Avantha Group CG, was responsible for the design, production, transportation and installation of a topside and jacket for the Veja Mate Offshore Wind Farm.
