DHSS Completes First Borkum Riffgrund 2 Run
Dutch offshore logistics service provider DHSS has completed the first CTV cargo run from its base in Eemshaven to the service operations vessel VOS Start at the Borkum Riffgrund 2 offshore wind farm in the German North Sea.
Ørsted is developing the 450MW wind farm some 57 kilometres off the north-west coast of Germany. The wind farm will comprise 56 MHI Vestas 8.3MW wind turbines.
The jack-up installation vessel Bold Tern installed the first four turbines at the site earlier this week and has now returned to the Port of Esbjerg in Denmark to pick up another set of four turbines.
MHI Vestas chartered VOS Start to assist during the commissioning of the wind turbines. The wind farm is scheduled to be fully commissioned in 2019.
