Bold Tern Picks Up 19th Batch of Hornsea One Turbines
Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-up Bold Tern is leaving the Port of Hull with the 19th loadout of turbines destined for installation at the Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm.
According to the company, Bold Tern has so far installed 71 Siemens Gamesa 7MW turbines at the project site some 120km off Yorkshire.
As recently reported, 124 out of the total 174 turbines have been installed and commissioned at the Hornsea Project One wind farm.
Bold Tern is in charge of installing 88 of the units, with A2SEA’s Sea Challenger responsible for installing the remaining 86 pieces.
The 1.2GW offshore wind farm, due to become the world’s largest once fully online in 2020, saw the first turbine installed this February.
