Bold Tern Installs Turbine 53 at Hornsea One
Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-up vessel Bold Tern has completed the installation of 53 turbines at the Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm in the UK.
Bold Tern is in charge of installing 88 out of the project’s total 174 turbines, with A2SEA’s Sea Challenger responsible for installing the remaining 86 units.
According to Fred. Olsen Windcarrier, the vessel recently left Hull with its 14th turbine loadout for the 1.2GW wind farm.
Hornsea Project One reached the halfway turbine installation point in mid-June as the 87th of 174 turbines had been installed at the project site some 120km off Yorkshire.
The wind farm, due to become the world’s largest offshore wind farm once fully online in 2020, saw the first turbine installed in February.
