Global Wind Service to Install Merkur Wind Turbines

GE Renewable Energy has contracted Global Wind Service (GWS) for the offshore installation scope on the 396MW Merkur offshore wind farm located in the German North Sea.

GWS, who will be in charge of installing 66 Haliade 150-6MW wind turbines at the site, will begin the works in the middle of February with the activities expected to last six months.

“We are very delighted about this award and are looking forward to be working with GE Renewable Energy on this project, drawing on our experience from Østerild in 2016,” said Michael Olsen, Chief Commercial Officer at GWS.

GE recently sent off the last set of GE Haliade nacelles for this year to the wind farm’s logistical operations hub in Eemshaven, the Netherlands, and by the end of the month the hub will have received 24 nacelles, 24 blades, and several other tower fragments and transition pieces.

The Merkur offshore wind farm, located approximately 35km north of the island of Borkum, will be one of Germany’s largest offshore wind farms once completed in 2018.

The owner and developer of the wind farm is Merkur Offshore GmbH, a joint venture between its shareholders Partners Group, InfraRed Capital Partners, DEME Concessions and Coriolis.
