18 Borssele 1+2 Foundations Stand
DEME Offshore’s jack-up Innovation has installed 18 out of 94 monopile foundations on the 752MW Borssele 1+2 offshore wind farm in the Dutch North Sea.
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.
