Ørsted Adds Bladt, Nexans and Cordeel to Borssele Team

Ørsted has added Bladt Industries, Nexans and Cordeel to the list of suppliers and contractors for the 752MW Borssele 1 and 2 wind farm in the Dutch North Sea, according to Henrik Egholm, EPC director Borssele 1 and 2.

Bladt Industries will manufacture and deliver 35 transition pieces for the project, with the fabrication expected to start shortly. Nexans is in charge of cable supply and termination, Egholm said.

Cordeel is going to construct the wind farm's O&M facility in Vlissingen-Buitenhaven at the North Sea Port, according to Egholm.

As reported earlier, Sif Holding and EEW SPC will manufacture and deliver 47 monopiles each. EEW OSB is tasked with producing 35 transition pieces for the project.

The monopile foundations will support 94 Siemens Gamesa 8MW wind turbines to be installed some 22 kilometers off the coast of Zeeland.

GeoSea will transport and install the foundations and A2SEA, part of GeoSea, will provide installation vessel capacity to transport and install the wind turbines.

The inter-array cables will be transported and installed by Van Oord.

The commissioning of the wind farm is scheduled for the end of 2020.
