Ørsted has awarded DEME’s GeoSea with a contract for the transportation and installation of 94 foundations and wind turbines at the Borssele 1 & 2 offshore wind farm in the Netherlands. 

Borssele 1 & 2 is located 23 kilometres from the Dutch coast and will have a total capacity of 752MW.

GeoSea will be responsible for the full scope of the Borssele 1 & 2 foundation installation and scour supply and installation. In this project, GeoSea will transport and install the 94 wind turbine foundation structures including the supply, transport and installation of scour protection on each location. The foundation type for the 94 wind turbines will be a monopile foundation with pre-installed scour protection, an anode cage and a bolted transition piece. Water depths range from 14 to 36 metres.

Under a separate contract, A2SEA, part of GeoSea, will also provide installation vessel capacity to transport and install 94 Siemens Gamesa 8MW turbines at the wind farm.

Jan Klaassen, business unit manager offshore renewables for GeoSea, said: “We are pleased that Ørsted has selected GeoSea for the largest offshore wind farm project in the Netherlands. The contract award demonstrates our leading position as a provider of state-of-the-art, integrated solutions for the offshore wind industry. We look forward to working with Ørsted and to leverage our joint expertise in order to successfully deliver this project.”

Monopile and turbine installation is scheduled in 2020, deploying vessels from the GeoSea fleet.
