The vessels are working as a tandem as part of DEME’s duo-vessel solution to speed up the construction, which the company already used at the East Anglia One offshore wind farm in the UK.
The 752 MW Borssele 1 & 2 wind farm will comprise 94 wind turbines.
The first wind turbine was installed mid-April.
Project construction started in January with the installation of the first foundation at the site located 22 kilometres off the coast of the province of Zeeland.
Once completed this year, the project will become the largest offshore wind farm in the Netherlands.
