100 Foundations in at Hornsea Two
DEME Offshore has installed the 100th monopile foundation at the 165-turbine Hornsea Two wind farm offshore the UK.
DEME installed the first foundation at the site some 89 kilometres north-east of Grimsby in early October 2020.
The monopile foundations are being loaded at and transported from the Buss Terminal Eemshaven in the Netherlands and installed at the site by DEME Offshore’s Innovation and Cadeler’s Wind Orca.
The monopiles for the project were fabricated by EEW and the transition pieces by Bladt Industries (135) and EEW Special Pipe Constructions (30).
Developed by Ørsted, the 1,386 MW Hornsea Two will comprise 165 Siemens Gamesa 8 MW turbines, an offshore substation, and a reactive compensation station (RCS).
The wind farm’s first turbine was erected at the end of May.
Once commissioned in 2022, Hornsea Two will become the largest operating wind farm in the world.
