Gibdock has confirmed its role as one of the offshore industry’s pre-eminent ship repair and conversion yards through its selection for the afloat mobilisation of Seajacks Scylla, the largest and most advanced windfarm installation jack-up ever built.

Following delivery to Seajacks by Samsung Heavy Industries at the end of 2015, Scylla was discharged to Gibraltar waters from the heavylift transporter Osprey before being towed into Gibdock for reactivation works at the yard’s South Mole.

Seajacks Scylla completed reactivation in record time (five days) and departed for Great Yarmouth (UK) in preparation for starting her first contract with on the Veja Mate offshore windfarm in March, off the coast of Germany.

Scylla has been designed to meet demands set by North West European markets, including those associated with working UK Round 3, Scottish territorial waters. The self-propelled jack-up is equipped with a 1,540T leg-encircling crane, can install components in water depths of up to 65m, and can transport monopoles and turbines of up 7-8MW capacity. She is the fifth modern, specialised offshore vessel to join the fleet of UK-based Seajacks.
