Ørsted has contracted Manor Renewable Energy (MRE) to provide temporary power during the turbine commissioning phase at the Borssele 1 + 2 offshore wind project.
Borssele 1 + 2 will comprise 94 Siemens Gamesa 8MW turbines located 22km from the coast of the Zeeland province in the Netherlands.
“We understand the requirements and expectations from the Ørsted project team and they align with our ambitions from an MRE perspective; on such a significant project, we are delighted to once again be working with the global leader in offshore wind,” said MRE Business Director Toby Mead.
Offshore construction started at the 752MW project earlier this month with the installation of the first monopile foundations. Commissioning is expected by the end of the year.
