A2SEA Wins Horns Rev 3 Turbine Installation Contract

Vattenfall has chosen A2SEA to install MHI Vestas V164-8.0MW turbines at the 400MW Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm.

Starting in summer 2018, A2SEA will deploy its offshore installation vessel, Sea Installer, to install the turbines. The turbines will be loaded out of the port of Esbjerg.

”As pioneers of offshore wind installation and with Denmark as pioneer country, we are proud to be chosen to install Horns Reef 3. We look forward to working with Vattenfall on this project, and I am confident that our team of experienced employees both onshore and offshore will deliver on time, on budget and most importantly in a safe manner,” said Jens Frederik Hansen, CEO at A2SEA.

Horns Rev 3 is an extension to Horns Rev 1 and 2 offshore wind farms also installed by A2SEA in 2002 and 2009, respectively.

When fully commissioned in 2018, Horns Rev 3 will be the largest operating wind farm in Danish waters.
