A2SEA’s wind turbine installation vessel Sea Installer left the Port of Hull on Sunday, 7 May, with the first load of wind turbine components for DONG Energy’s 580MW Race Bank offshore wind farm.
Sea Installer has reached the installation site some 27km off the coast of North Norfolk and is currently installing the first Siemens 6MW turbine.
In total, Sea Installer will install 91 turbines at the site.
Race Bank is expected to be fully commissioned in 2018.
Sea Installer is for a short period of time sharing the Port of Hull with her sister vessel Sea Challenger which is currently installing turbines on Statoil’s 402MW Dudgeon offshore wind farm.
