First Turbine Up at Trianel Windpark Borkum II

Jan De Nul’s vessel Taillevent has installed the first turbine at the Trianel Windpark Borkum II (TWBII) offshore wind farm.

The 200MW TWBII wind farm will comprise 32 Senvion 6.2M152 turbines installed on monopile foundations at the site some 40km north of the island of Borkum in the German North Sea.

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%
