Nordsee One Turbine Installation Completed
The 54th and final turbine was installed at the Nordsee One construction site on Friday, 22 September. The 332MW offshore wind farm is scheduled to begin commercial operations by the end of this year.
The 54 wind turbines were stored, pre-assembled and then loaded on the installation vessel MPI Enterprise at the Dutch base port located in Eemshaven. Each Senvion 6.2M126 wind turbine is approximately 150 metres tall.
Tim Kittelhake, Managing Director (COO) of Nordsee One GmbH, said: “We successfully completed turbine installation within seven months. With this process now complete, we are now focused on achieving project completion. Our goal is to ensure complete operational readiness by the end of this year. The team is working hard to deliver the gift of green energy for the holidays.”
The first Senvion 6.2M126 turbine was installed in early March.
Pierre Lestienne, Managing Director (CFO) of Nordsee One GmbH, added: “Most of the turbines are already feeding green electricity into the grid. We are very pleased with our progress so far. With another project milestone behind us, we remain focused on advancing the project into commercial operation.”
Once completed, the Nordsee One offshore wind farm will supply the equivalent of approximately 400,000 households with green electricity. The wind farm will be operated and serviced from the operation and maintenance base in Norddeich (Germany, Lower-Saxony).
Nordsee One is owned by Northland Power Inc. (85%) and innogy SE (15%).
