Svenja is picking up six transition pieces, which were produced by EEW Offshore Structures Britain (OSB) and barged down to the Redcar terminal by ALE.

EEW OSB is manufacturing and delivering a total of 35 transition pieces for Ørsted’s 752MW wind farm, with Denmark’s Bladt Industries in charge of manufacturing and delivering the remaining 59 pieces.

The Borssele 1+2 offshore wind farm will comprise 94 Siemens Gamesa 8MW turbines installed some 23km off the coast of Zeeland in the Netherlands.

EEW OSB completed the load-out of the first six transition pieces for Borssele 1+2 in mid-October.
