DP2 Heavy Lift Vessel Jumbo Javelin has installed its 100th Transition Piece for the Greater Gabbard Offshore Wind Farm (GGOWF), off the UK’s south-east coast.

For this project, Jumbo’s scope includes transport, installation, leveling and grouting of the Transition Pieces. The close cooperation between all parties (client Fluor, Jumbo’s crew, the project team and subcontractors) has resulted in a record-breaking installation performance.

The portion of the job was completed in less than three and a half months. With another 30 Transition Pieces to go, Jumbo expects to complete installation works in the second half of August, well before the scheduled completion date.

Jumbo Offshore has access to 14 Heavy Lift Vessels, two of which are DP2-class: the Jumbo Javelin and the Fairplayer. These DP2-vessels can be used for subsea installation work, including the installation of subsea structures and the installation of moorings for floating production systems.
