Huisman Equipment has shared a photo of the jack-up vessel Seajacks Scylla installing one of the 67 Siemens 6MW turbines at the 402MW Veja Mate offshore wind farm using a 1,500mt Huisman Leg Encircling Crane.
Seajacks Scylla and Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-up vessel Bold Tern started loading the first batch of turbine components from the Port of Esbjerg in Denmark in early January.
Seajacks Scylla had already worked on the project, installing 67 monopiles at the site located some 95 kilometres north west of the island of Borkum in the German part of the North Sea.
Veja Mate is a EUR 1.9 billion offshore wind project owned by the Highland Group Holdings Ltd, Siemens Financial Services, and CI II, managed by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners.
The wind farm is expected to be fully operational by late 2017/early 2018.
