GeoSea has installed the first of 66 monopiles on the 396MW Merkur offshore wind farm in the German North Sea.

GeoSea, part of DEME Group, is the general contractor for engineering, construction and installation of foundations, the offshore substation and the internal array grid.

Offshore transport of wind turbine generators is also included in the scope of GeoSea’s works.
