Sea Challenger loading first Borssele 1+2 turbine components in Esbjerg
DEME Group’s installation vessel Sea Challenger has started loading the first wind turbine components for the Borssele 1 + 2 offshore wind farm at the Port of Esbjerg in Denmark.
Located some 23 kilometres off the coast of Zeeland in the Netherlands, the 752 MW Borssele 1 + 2 wind farm will feature 94 Siemens Gamesa 8 MW wind turbines installed on monopile foundations.
DEME Offshore’s jack-up Innovation is currently installing the foundations at the site, while Van Oord is installing the inter-array cables.
The wind farm will be connected to the Borssele Alpha offshore converter platform.
Owned and developed by Ørsted, the wind farm is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
