Whilst working on the Greater Gabbard Offshore Wind Farm in Lowestoft a few days back, Boston Energy’s Turbine Technicians Oliver Tomlinson and Chris Chatten responded to an urgent Pan-Pan sent by a distressed yacht in need of immediate assistance.
ICENI Venture were taking the coastal route to the field, due to the bad weather conditions and were the first on the scene. Oliver and Chris were on the deck to call out to the 2 distressed passengers along with the ICENI Deckhand.
Under the firm instruction of Captain Aaron Thurlow, the whole team stayed with the yacht until the Southwold RNLI arrived on the scene. Whilst the RNLI prepared for a long tow back to Lowestoft, the ICENI Venture stayed on the scene, later joined by the ICENI Legend, captained by Matthew Tailor, who was in communication with the Humber Coastguard.
Immediately after the incident was under control, a weather-day was called. Therefore, Oliver and Chris returned to Lowestoft leaving the Southwold RNLI to do what they do best.
Nobody was harmed and everybody returned home safely.
Boston Energy would like to take this opportunity to say a massive well done to everyone involved, it’s definitely something to be proud of.
