This weekend, Vattenfall said via social media that the components for the last turbines were being loaded onto Cadeler’s vessel. DHSS, which is supporting the commissioning of the turbines from its hub in IJmuiden, said via social media on 4 June that the last turbines will be installed over the “coming days”.

According to AIS data available online, Wind Osprey has already arrived at the project site, located some 20 kilometres off the Dutch province of Zuid-Holland.

The vessel transported the first turbine from Sif’s Maasvlakte 2 site in the Port of Rotterdam and installed it in mid-April last year. By the end of February of this year, 100 out of the 140 Siemens Gamesa 11.0-200 DD wind turbines were in place at Hollandse Kust Zuid.

Once all the 140 wind turbines are installed and commissioned, which is expected this summer, the 1.5 GW Hollandse Kust Zuid will become the world’s largest offshore wind farm in operation.

The project, owned by Vattenfall, BASF, and Allianz, is also the world’s first subsidy-free offshore wind farm.
