Brave Tern Arrives at Wikinger OWF Site

Fred .Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-up vessel Brave Tern has arrived at the Wikinger construction site after sailing out last night, a spokesman from Iberdrola told Offshore WIND.

The vessel will install 70 Adwen 5MW wind turbines at the offshore wind farm in the German sector of the Baltic Sea.

After being loaded with turbine components at the Port of Sassnitz-Mukran earlier this month, the Brave Tern had been waiting for a weather window to start working at the site.

Installation works are now about to commence.

C-bed’s floating hotel Wind Ambition has been deployed on the Wikinger project to support the turbine installation and commissioning by providing accommodation.

The EUR 1.4 billion project is scheduled to be operational by the end of this year and represents Iberdrola’s first offshore wind farm in German waters.
