Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-up Brave Tern is transporting the turbines from the Port of Esbjerg and installing them at the site located 25-40 kilometres off the Danish west coast. A2SEA is responsible for the planning and execution of the wind turbine installation.

At the same time, Jan De Nul’s installation vessel Vole au vent is installing the transition pieces on the wind farm. So far, nine transition pieces have been installed, a spokesperson for Vattenfall told Offshore WIND.

The 406.7MW Horns Rev 3 is the first Danish offshore wind farm to feature an MHI Vestas V164-8.0 MW turbine model.

The wind farm is expected to deliver first power in September. The full commissioning is slated for 2020.
