Blue Water Shipping Prepares for Two Offshore Wind Projects
Blue Water Shipping has been appointed as an agent for A2SEA for offshore projects Borkum Riffgrund and Westermost Rough. A2SEA will load Siemens turbines in Esbjerg and install them respectively in German and UK waters.
“At the moment, our agency team is preparing the mobilisation scopes and various project team requirements. We have worked with A2SEA many times previously and latest on the wind parks Anholt and West of Duddon Sands where the turbines was shipped out of Greena and Belfast respectively,” says Head of Sales and Development Wind, Jacob Kjærgaard.
Installation work on both offshore wind projects is due to commence in July 2014, when the vessel SEA INSTALLER will install 78 turbines at Borkum Riffgrund and the new build SEA CHALLENGER install 35 turbines at Westermost Rough. Both of the wind farms are owned by DONG Energy.
