DEME Offshore has won contracts to transport and install foundations and wind turbines on Ørsted’s 1.4GW Hornsea Two offshore wind farm in the UK.
The Hornsea Two offshore wind farm is located approximately 89 kilometres off the Yorkshire coast and will comprise 165 Siemens Gamesa 8.4MW wind turbines installed on monopile foundations.
DEME Offshore will transport and install the 165 foundations and carry out scour protection. The monopiles and transition pieces will be installed by the company’s new DP3 offshore installation vessel Orion which will enter the fleet by the end of the year.
Turbine installation will be carried out with offshore installation vessels Sea Challenger and Sea Installer. The installation should be completed in early 2022.
The total contract value is approximately over EUR 200 million, DEME said.
Bart De Poorter, General Manager at DEME Offshore, said: “We are delighted with this major contract award from Ørsted, which once again highlights our vast track record and technical expertise in providing innovative solutions for the offshore wind industry. We look forward to working with Ørsted and to leverage our joint expertise to successfully and safely deliver this major project.”
