GE Renewable Energy has completed the handover of the 66 GE Haliade 150-6MW turbines at the Merkur offshore wind farm in Germany.

GE is also in charge of carrying out operations and maintenance of the turbines for a period of ten years.

To remind, jack-up vessel Seafox 5 installed the last turbine at the project site 45km of the island of Borkum in September last year, shortly after the wind farm produced first power.

The 396MW Merkur offshore wind farm is expected to be fully commissioned this year.

Merkur Offshore GmbH, a joint venture between Partners Group, InfraRed Capital Partners, DEME Concessions and Coriolis, is the developer and owner of the project.
