First Trianel Windpark Borkum II Turbine Taking Shape
Jan De Nul’s jack-up Taillevent has started installing the first wind turbine on the 200MW Trianel Windpark Borkum II (TWBII) wind farm offshore Germany.
Taillevent loaded the first three sets of turbine components at Buss Terminal Eemshaven prior to transporting them to the site some 40 kilometres north of the island of Borkum in the German North Sea.
The wind farm will comprise a total of 32 Senvion 6.2M152 turbines installed on monopile foundations.
Senvion will deliver the final turbines to Buss Terminal Eemshaven by autumn and the wind farm is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
Trianel Windpark Borkum II, the developer of the project, is owned by EWE AG with a share of 37.5 percent, and a joint venture of the power utility of the city of Zurich with 24.51 percent.
The Stadtwerke-Kooperation Trianel together with 17 municipal utilities from Germany holds a share of 37.99 percent.
