100 Turbines Up at Hornsea Two Offshore Wind Farm
DEME Offshore has installed 100 turbines on the Hornsea Two offshore wind farm, with 65 more of Siemens Gamesa 8.4 MW units left to be put into place.
The jack-up vessel Sea Challenger installed the first wind turbine at the end of May and in less than three months later the project had 50 wind turbines installed on their respective foundations.
The work is being carried out by both Sea Installer and Sea Challenger, which are transporting the turbines from Siemens Gamesa’s facilities in the Port of Hull and installing them at the project site.
Along with 165 wind turbines, Ørsted’s1,386 MW Hornsea Two will also comprise an offshore substation, and a reactive compensation station (RCS).
Located in the North Sea some 89 kilometres off the Yorkshire Coast, Hornsea Two spans an offshore area of 462 square kilometres and will be the world’s largest wind farm when it goes into operation in 2022.
