GE Renewable Energy has selected Global Wind Service (GWS) as a primary partner for the commissioning and completion scope for the 396MW Merkur offshore wind farm in the German North Sea.

The scope of work will include onshore commissioning preparation activities and offshore electrical and mechanical activities, such as tensioning, completion, punch-lists, MV activities including switchgear testing, MV cable preparation, as well as HV work.

In December last year, GE contracted GWS for installing 66 Haliade 150-6MW wind turbines at the wind farm site some 35km north of the island of Borkum. The works will begin in the middle of February, with activities expected to last six months.

“We are very pleased that GE Renewable Energy has chosen GWS as their partner on installation, mechanical and electrical completion and commissioning for this project. This gives us a unique possibility to bring synergies to the project in both planning and execution of the work scope,” said Michael Høj Olsen, CCO at GWS.

The Merkur offshore wind farm is expected to be completed this year, when it will become one of the country’s largest offshore wind farms.

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.
