Gemini Activities in Rearview Mirror (VIDEO)
After the Gemini foundations, substations, and cables were installed this year, the work on the Dutch offshore wind project will continue early next year.
The last of 150 foundations at the Gemini offshore wind farm was installed on 17 October. In February 2016, Van Oord’s installation vessel Aeolus and Swire Blue Ocean’s Pacific Osprey, which worked on the foundation installation, will return to the project to install 150 Siemens’ 4MW wind turbines.
The wind farm is being built on two locations close to each other, ‘Buitengaats’ and ‘ZeeEnergie’, hence the name Gemini. Once operational, the project will be one of the world’s largest offshore wind farms, both in terms of size and production.
