The final of the 67 Siemens SWT-6.0-154 turbines at the 402MW Veja Mate offshore wind farm was commissioned on Wednesday, 31 May, Veja Mate Offshore Project GmbH reports.

The milestone signifies that all of the 67 units are now feeding power to the grid, the developer said.

The final turbine was installed at the site in the German North Sea on Thursday, 25 May, less than 14 months from the start of the construction phase and 23 months after the project’s financial close, according to the developer.

The first turbine was installed in early January 2017. The two jack-up vessels working on the project out of the Port of Esbjerg in Denmark were Seajacks Scylla and Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s Bold Tern.

The project was completed four months ahead of schedule and will be delivered well within the CAPEX budget agreed at the financial close, the developer said.

Veja Mate is a EUR 1.9 billion project owned by the Highland Group Holdings Ltd, Siemens Financial Services and CI II managed by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners.
