 WALNEY 01 & 02    (Page 10 & 11)

 TRANSITION PIECE MAINTENANCE PROGRAMM

Transition Piece maintenance is being undertaken on both WALNEY 1 & 2, this programme will run for a provisional 4 months.

Sequence of locations and dates are unavailable as works will be weather dependant and coordinated to ensure no conflict with routine maintenance operations.

REQUEST FOR SAFETY AREA

Mariners are requested to observe a 500m distance Safety Area around the affected Turbine(s) while works are being carried out.

The CTV “Rix Lion” (picture attached) will act as Guard Vessel during this maintenance programme with the vessel broadcasting the Turbine ID, establishment/cancellation of the safety areas and seeking contact with marine traffic approaching of nearing the areas on VHF Channel 16 and 12.

When “Rix Lion” is operating in the Wind Farm, you can assume work is being undertaken on several turbines which will have the requested Safety Areas in place.

TURBINE POSITION B07

Mariners are advised that due to a fault on the turbine nacelle crane there is presently a suspended load at B07, position 54 º03.23’N 003 º30.760’W
