GeoSea offers first-class offshore contracting solutions to global clients. We have the skills, the technology and the equipment to perform in the most challenging marine environment. Always working closely with our clients, we understand what it takes to define and deliver a project cost-effectively, safely and on time.
World-class track record
Our scope of work consists of EPCI contracting for foundations, monopile installation, pre-piling & post-piling jacket foundations, wind turbine logistics & installation and maintenance services during operational lifetime of wind farms. GeoSea’s jack-up platforms include INNOVATION, NEPTUNE, THOR, GOLIATH, VAGANT and BUZZARD. They are assigned to projects around the globe, including on the North Sea, the Middle East and Australia.
Safety: our first priority
Safety is the key factor in any successful offshore project. Working at sea requires a safe and healthy environment for all of us. GeoSea adheres to strict weather and sea state condition regulations, and we make our safety performance visible through transparent reporting.
To better serve our clients, we continuously develop new techniques, methods and tools in our own Research and Development department. This approach has made us a competitive bidder and cost-efficient partner. We often are the first in the world to propose new solutions with net gain in safety, working time and accuracy. As an example, among many others, GeoSea developed several seabed templates, for accurate installation of piles for jacket foundation of different sizes and configurations.
Our plant, platforms and vessels may be huge and the offshore constructions we build may be enormous, but the tolerances we respect, the accuracy we aim at and the precision of our realisations are unequalled. An offshore wind turbine tower may rise to the skies but its foundations are piled at vertical and relative tolerances measured in millimetres. This quality is guaranteed by numerous certificates, incl. ISO 9001, VCA** and OHSAS 18001.
With the recent acquisition of A2SEA, GeoSea has now additional wind turbine installation vessels and capacities based on a vast track record of more than 1,500 wind turbines installed. With the development of the new floating installation vessel ORION we will bring a game changing installation concept into the offshore wind market. This vessel will even further contribute to a greener future by its LNG fuelled engines and faster and cheaper installation capacities.
German-based offshore wind developer innogy has reached financial close for the 860MW Triton Knoll offshore wind farm in the UK, worth around GBP 2 billion, and moved the project towards construction that starts with the onshore electrical system in September. Offshore construction is expected to start in late 2019 or early 2..read more →
