Tideway is currently installing 73 inter-array cables at the Merkur offshore wind farm in the German North Sea.

The Normand Jarstein is being used to assist during pull-in preparations/operations and for cable terminations, Tideway said.

The Ampelmann E1000 motion compensated gangway is being deployed, which includes a cargo function, and can transfer people and cargo up to one tonne in sea states of Hs 2.5m, according to Tideway.

To date, the Ampelmann gangway has transferred 1,877 persons and performed 771 cargo lifts, resulting in a total weight of more than 200t.

Seaway Heavy Lifting’s Oleg Strashnov has recently installed the 2,660t topside for the Merkur offshore substation, following the installation of the substation’s jacket foundation in October.

The Merkur offshore wind farm, located approximately 35km north of the island of Borkum in Germany, will consist of 66 Haliade 150-6MW wind turbines.

Once completed this year, it will be one of the country’s largest offshore wind farms.
