Havfram Wind Seals Nordseecluster Transportation and Installation Deal

Norway’s Havfram Wind has signed a contract with RWE for the transportation and installation of wind turbines for the Nordseecluster development, an up to 1.6 GW offshore wind cluster comprising four offshore wind farm sites in the German sector of the North Sea.

Under the contract, Havfram Wind will be responsible for the transportation and installation of 104 Vestas V236-15.0 MW wind turbines, which are to be installed throughout two construction phases.

Both of Havfram Wind’s wind turbine installation vessels (WTIVs), built by Yantai CIMC Raffles Offshore shipyard in China, will be utilised throughout both phases, said the Norwegian company.

Turbine installation of the two wind farms in Phase A is expected to start in 2026 and offshore construction works for Phase B are scheduled to begin in 2028.

For the 1.6 GW offshore wind project in Germany, all deliverables are subject to final investment decisions for each of the individual phases for the Nordseecluster, Havfram Wind said.

The two Nordseecluster A wind farms (N-3.8 and N-3.7) are located 35 kilometres north of Juist Island and 55 kilometres off the German Coast.


The wind farms will have a combined capacity of 660 MW and the project is currently in the permit application phase.

The second phase Nordseecluster B will add 900 MW of capacity installed across two more wind farms at sites N-3.5 and N-3.6, which RWE secured in the latest tender round held in Germany.

Nordseecluster A is expected to enter commercial operation in early 2027 while Nordseecluster B is scheduled for commissioning in 2028/2029.
