DEME Offshore’s jack-up Sea Installer has arrived at the Port of Hull in the UK to load the first set of turbine components to be installed on the 1,386 MW Hornsea Two offshore wind farm.
Sea Installer is joining her sister vessel Sea Challenger on the project which has already installed the first batch of the Siemens Gamesa 8.4 MW wind turbines at what will be the largest operating offshore wind farm once completed in 2022.
In total, the two jack-ups will install 165 wind turbines at the site some 89 kilometres north-east of Grimsby.
Sea Challenger worked on the 1.2 GW Hornsea One, currently the largest operating wind farm in the world, as well.
The foundations are being installed by DEME’s Innovation and Cadeler’s Wind Orca.
Hornsea Two will also comprise an offshore substation, and a reactive compensation station (RCS). The wind farm is being developed by Ørsted.
