Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-up Bold Tern has loaded and transported the third set of MHI Vestas wind turbine components from the Port of Esbjerg in Denmark to the Borkum Riffgrund 2 wind farm in the German North Sea.
The vessel has so far installed eight out of the 56 MHI Vestas 8MW turbines at the site some 57 kilometres off the north-west coast of Germany.
Back in April, Van Oord started installing the cables to connect the turbines to the offshore substation. The wind farm will also be connected to the nearby Borkum Riffgrund 1, as well as the DolWin3 converter platform.
Ørsted, the developer of the 450MW project, plans to officially inaugurate the wind farm in 2019.
