SeaMar scores agency contract for Seaway Offshore Cables duo

Shipping logistics specialist SeaMar Services has started a vessel agency contract with Seaway Offshore Cables, a company in Subsea 7’s Renewables & Heavy Lifting Business Unit. The contract will ensure swift and efficient port calls for the Seaway Moxie and Seaway Aimery during their work on the Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm.

SeaMar will be providing a full package of vessel agency services to Seaway Offshore Cables. This includes all customs and port administration relating to the vessels and equipment, in addition to crew change logistics such as immigration and visa documentation, and loading of stores and provisions.

Quick turnarounds

The first port calls for the Seaway Moxie and the Seaway Aimery took place on 23 and 24 October respectively. “For the duration of this contract, we will be looking to make our client’s stopovers at the Port of Den Helder as smooth as possible,” says SeaMar’s Logistics Coordinator Michel de Greef. “Of course this is dependent on many factors such as maintenance requirements and weather conditions, but it is not uncommon to achieve turnaround times of between three and five hours.”

 “We have the experience and logistics in place to ensure that the Seaway Moxie and the Seaway Aimery can get back to their duties as fast as possible.”

Dynamic duo

With an impressive list of completed subsea cable installation projects, Cable Lay Vessel Seaway Aimery and Installation Support Vessel Seaway Moxie – also known as the ‘Seaway Duo’ – have built up a strong reputation in the offshore wind sector. For the Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm, the two vessels will be performing engineering, transport and installation works on two sections of the inner array cable system.
