Innovation is loading the monopiles and the transition pieces at Sif’s facility on Maasvlakte 2 in Rotterdam and installing them at the site some 22 kilometres off the coast of the Zeeland province.

The first foundation was installed at the site mid-January.

Scheduled to be operational by the end of the year, Borssele 1+2 will comprise 94 Siemens Gamesa 8MW wind turbines.

The turbine installation is expected to begin in April, Ørsted, the owner and developer of the project, said.
