Borssele 1&2 Construction Entering Home Stretch

Ørsted has shared an update on construction activities at the site of the 752 MW Borssele 1&2 wind farm in the Dutch North Sea.

DEME’s jack-up tandem of Sea Installer and Sea Challenger has now installed two-thirds of the wind farm’s 94 Siemens Gamesa 8 MW wind turbines.

The inter-array cables have been laid and the burial of the last of the cables is currently ongoing. Van Oord is in charge of installing and burying the wind farm’s inter-array cables. The cable-laying vessel Nexus and the trencher Dig-It have been deployed at the site.

The final of the wind farm’s 94 monopile foundations was installed at the beginning of June. DEME Offshore’s jack-up Innovation carried out the installation of the foundations.

Borssele 1&2 will be completed in the fourth quarter of 2020 when it will become the largest operating wind farm in the Dutch North Sea.
