The jack-up vessel loaded the final batch of the MHI Vestas units destined for the 406.7MW project on 10 January at the Port of Esbjerg.

Offshore construction began back in July last year when the first turbine was installed at the site 25-40km west of Houstrup Strand on the Danish west coast.

Horns Rev 3, owned by Vattenfall, is expected to be completed as early as in May this year, instead of the initial plan to have it finalized in 2020.

The offshore wind farm comprises a total of 49 MHI Vestas V164-8.3 MW turbines, marking the first time this turbine model is used in Danish waters.

The project delivered first power in December 2018 and will officially become the largest offshore wind farm in Denmark once commissioned.
