All turbines standing at Borssele 1 & 2 offshore wind farm

DEME Offshore has completed the installation of the 94 Siemens Gamesa 8 MW turbines at the Borssele 1 & 2 offshore wind farm in the Netherlands.

DEME’s jack-up tandem Sea Installer and Sea Challenger were in charge of the installation at the site located 22km off the coast of the province of Zeeland.

The first turbine was installed in mid-April, shortly after which Borssele 1 & 2 delivered its first power.

Commissioning of the 752 MW project is planned for 5 October, when it will become the largest offshore wind farm in the Netherlands.

“The construction of our wind farm went really well. Now we have completed the installation of the foundations, cables and turbines, in only 9 months,” said Henrik Egholm, EPC director Borssele 1 & 2 for Ørsted.

“We have been able to construct the whole 752 MW wind farm, during a pandemic without anyone being infected which all can be very proud of. Naturally, we have worked according to the highest safety standard, both from a COVID-19 and from a construction perspective.”
