Galloper Wind Farm – Fishing Hazard & Exposed Cable

Galloper Wind Farm – Fishing Hazard & Exposed Cable

ROVCO will be undertaking subsea inspection operations on both the North and South Field of the Galloper Wind farm from 6th September for a period of up to 45 days.

The DP2 Vessel the ATLANTIC VOYAGER will be operating an ROV subsea in close proximity to the Galloper assets. when the ATLANTIC VOYAGER is operating we ask that a 500M safety zone around the vessel is adhered to

The ALANTIC VOYAGER will monitor and is contactable VHF CH 16 and may contact any vessel that is proximity to the vessel to the vessel during ROV operations.


As cable exposure is a known risk at Galloper and across the offshore wind industry, we would remind Mariners of the safety information found on the KIS-ORCA website 'The risks of fishing near cables and renewable energy structures'.

To avoid crossing cables when towing equipment follow the cable corridors- locations of the cables can be found on the Galloper awareness charts via KIS-ORCA.
