The West of Duddon Sands Offshore Wind Farm is located in the East Irish Sea approximately 14 km from the nearest coast on Walney Island, Cumbria.
The project contains 108 wind turbines with a total installed capacity of 389MW and ensure clean renewable energy for more than 300,000 UK households.
DDC used the PBA 1450 drill rig for the project. The drill rig is a Self Supporting Drilling Unit (SSDU). That means that all the equipment is on the platform to carry out the drilling operations.
