Seaway Heavy Lifting has been awarded a contract for engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of the turbine foundations for the Trianel Windpark Borkum II wind farm on the German continental shelf.
According to the company, the award is still subject to financial close of the full project which is expected in the first half of 2017.
The Trianel Windpark Borkum II wind farm is located 45 km North of Borkum Island in the German bight. The 203 Megawatt offshore wind farm comprises 32 wind turbines of 6,3 MW each. Each foundation consists of a monopile and a transition piece.
Project management and engineering has already started at Seaway Heavy Lifting’s offices in Hamburg and Zoetermeer.
Fabrication will take place in 2017 and 2018, while offshore installation activities will be executed in 2018 using Seaway Heavy Lifting’s heavy lift vessel, Stanislav Yudin.
Jan Willem van der Graaf, CEO of Seaway Heavy Lifting, said: “The Borkum II project is Seaway Heavy Lifting’s second EPCI project and is a major step forward in achieving our ambition to be a leading EPCI contractor in the offshore renewables industry. We are proud that Trianel Windpark Borkum II has chosen Seaway Heavy Lifting for this project. We see the award as a sign of confidence in Seaway Heavy Lifting’s ability to deliver.“
