Jan De Nul’s vessel Taillevent has installed the first turbine at the Trianel Windpark Borkum II (TWBII) offshore wind farm.
Taillevent is loading the turbine components in sets of three at the Buss Terminal Eemshaven, Senvion’s base for the project. According to the project developer, two more turbines will be installed in the coming days.
The turbine installation, initially scheduled to start mid-April, was postponed until summer after Senvion had filed for self-administration in April.
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 37.5% share, and a joint venture of the power utility of the city of Zurich with 24.51%. The Stadtwerke-Kooperation Trianel together with 17 municipal utilities from Germany holds a share of 37.99%
