Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s installation vessel Brave Tern has installed three of the five GE Renewable Energy Haliade 150-6MW turbines at the Block Island Wind Farm.
This is the first offshore wind farm to be installed in US waters and the first project Fred. Olsen Windcarrier has worked on outside of Europe.
“The first turbine on this landmark project was installed on 4th August. Installation is progressing well and on schedule,” said Fred. Olsen Windcarrier project manager, Eskil Røset.
All five Haliade 150-6MW turbines are expected to be installed by early September.
The wind farm is planned for full commissioning by the end of the year.
