Gode Wind 1 and 2 Turbines Installation Halfway Done

A2SEA’s self-propelled jack-up vessel Sea Challenger has completed the installation of the 49th turbine at the 582 MW Gode Wind 1 and 2 offshore wind farm, marking and surpassing the halfway stage in the process.

When completed, Gode Wind 1 and 2 will comprise 97 6 MW Siemens Wind Power turbines, making it the largest contiguous offshore wind farm in Germany to date.

“This a great achievement. On behalf of the project team, I would like to thank our crew, DONG Energy and Siemens Wind Power for great cooperation and performance despite installation in challenging weather during winter season. We are looking forward to continue this partnership for the remaining installation period,” said Project Manager Thomas Sandberg.

The wind farm is owned by DONG Energy and is expected to be fully commissioned in the second half of 2016.
