Seajack's flagship jack up vessel “Scylla” will be a flexible vessel for Van Oord where it will take on all task required for its projects
Van Oord has several projects in its pipeline, but Seajacks Scylla will likely be operating in the North Sea at Saint Brieuc where the vessel can do various operations like drilling and piling, jacket installation and/or turbine installation. The ideal task for Seajacks Scylla on Saint Brieuc will be jacket installation to begin with. Considering that Seajacks and Van Oord have signed a contract extension it would not be surprising that Scylla will assist or take over the turbine installation from Wind Osprey at Hollandse Kust Noord V. The original contract with Van Oord spanned from February 2023 to November 2023, with December 2023 as optional. Due to the contract value being only €2.6 million, it’s likely that there will be an additional payment because December 2023 will change from optional to confirmed. Pushing the contract into 2024 would have a higher vessel cost for Van Oord.
