Ice Throw from the Turbine Blades

We would like to remind all vessels near the Dudgeon Wind farm that during the winter months that you could see large build ups of ice on overhead structures including the turbines blades. The result could be ice dropping from a height and ice throw from turbine blades. We remind all vessels to keep well clear of the turbines and sub-station and remain a safe distance.

MARINERS ARE HEREBY INFORMED; that a statutory construction Safety Zone (exclusion zone) is in place at the wind farm site. This safety zone is defined by:

  • A 500 metres radius around each wind turbine, offshore sub-station and their foundations whilst work is being performed as indicated by the presence of construction vessels; and
  • A 50 metres radius around each wind turbine, the offshore sub-station platform and associated foundation structures installed, complete or incomplete but waiting to be commissioned as part of the Dudgeon offshore wind farm where personnel are present on, or are being landed on or being taken from the structures.
