Sofia Offshore Wind Farm Case Study: Curtis Marshall

Posted 3 December 2020

B Marshall Marine was recently featured in a supplier case study for the Sofia Offshore Windfarm. 

The article was a result of our successful offshore investigation campaign on the Curtis Marshall on behalf of Fugro. Comprising environmental sampling and benthic camera operations, the project made use of the vessel's crane and recently upgraded A-frame with an integrated winch. The project team successfully delivered the scope safely, both on time and within budget, ensuring all COVID-19 guidelines were followed. 


Sofia Offshore Wind Farm

Located more than 195 km offshore, Sofia is a 1.4 gigawatt (GW) Offshore Wind Farm sited in the Dogger Bank area of the North Sea and is currently the largest offshore wind project in RWE's portfolio. With construction due to start next year, the distance offshore brings a challenge for various project stakeholders. 

"After developing our first multipurpose vessel specifically for the marine renewables sector we are very pleased to have been involved with the Sofia project. We take pride in developing our vessels, ensuring we can constantly evolve to keep up with the ever-changing requirements. Projects like Sofia help us to re-invest, as we are doing again in conjunction with Marshall Jakeman Marine Ltd to design develop and build the new MJM Enterprise. A 26m survey vessel that will fulfil the requirements of future demanding projects like Sofia."

Managing Director Chris Jakeman
