Fred. Olsen Windcarrier Snags Albatros

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has awarded Fred. Olsen Windcarrier with a contract to transport and install Siemens Gamesa 7MW turbines at EnBW’s Albatros offshore wind farm.

The 112MW Albatros wind farm is located 100 kilometres from shore in the German Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). The 16-turbine wind farm is scheduled for commissioning during the second half of 2019.

This project follows on directly from the contract to install the same type of turbines at the neighbouring 497MW EnBW Hohe See wind farm awarded to Fred. Olsen Windcarrier in March 2016.

“This new contract will continue our strong relationship with Siemens Gamesa, emphasising faith in our vessels and future collaboration,” said Martin Degen, Commercial Manager for Fred. Olsen Windcarrier.

“Being awarded this reinforces our prime position in the German North Sea.”
