The Danish company is in charge of manufacturing and delivering 135 transition pieces for the project. The units are being manufactured at Bladt’s facilities in Aalborg. The deliveries are expected to continue until mid-2021.

Ørsted’s Hornsea Two offshore wind farm will comprise 165 Siemens Gamesa 8.4 MW turbines expected to be up and running by 2022.

The remaining 30 transition pieces are being manufactured and delivered by EEW OSB. The wind farm’s monopiles will be manufactured and delivered by EEW SPC, the parent company of EEW OSB.

DEME Offshore will transport and install the wind farm’s 165 foundations at the project site some 89 kilometres off the Yorkshire coast.

DEME has selected the Buss Terminal Eemshaven in the Netherlands as the base port for the installation of the foundations at Hornsea Two.
