GE Renewable Energy has published a photo showing its Haliade 150-6MW nacelles for the 396MW Merkur offshore wind farm being assembled at the company’s Saint-Nazaire site in France.

The nacelles are stored at Saint-Nazaire, while new ones continue to be manufactured, and will then be shipped to the company’s logistical operations hub in Eemshaven, the Netherlands, from where the installation process will begin in spring 2018.

The first out of the total of 66 Haliade 6MW nacelles left the manufacturer’s assembly line in April.

The installation of monopiles at the offshore construction site 35km north of the German island of Borkum also started in April this year, when GeoSea installed the first one.

Merkur Offshore, the developer of the wind farm, recently signed a contract with the Dutch subsidiary of EMS Maritime Offshore (EMO) for the construction of a service base in Eemshaven, from where the company will be carrying out part of its maintenance and service works for the offshore wind farm from spring 2018.

GE Renewable Energy, who will supply the wind turbines for Merkur, will use the entire infrastructure for the upcoming years.

The wind farm is scheduled for commissioning in 2019.
