Offshore Project Progress - 20 May

EUROPE: Recent project updates from three projects totalling almost 2.2GW of offshore capacity in the UK and Germany.

All turbines have been installed at Dong Energy's 582MW Gode Wind project in Germany

Hornsea Project One

Foundation deal: Dong Energy has contracted Bladt Industries to supply three of the four substation topsides for Hornsea Project One.

Each will weigh around 2,800 tonnes and will be produced in close cooperation with Semco Maritime. The first topside will be ready for delivery in spring 2018.

The 1.2GW Hornsea Project One is being developed in the North Sea, 120 kilometres off the UK's east coast. 18-May


Gode Wind

Turbines completed: All 97 Siemens SWT-6.0-154 6MW turbines have been installed at Dong Energy's 582MW Gode Wind in the German North Sea.

Installation was undertaken from A2SEA's Sea Challenger jack-up vessel, on time and on budget, the company said. 19-May



Vessel charter: With its Gode Wind assignment completed, A2SEA's Sea Challenger vessel's next project will be at Dudgeon in the UK.

It will act as an accommodation vessel from September, until turbine installation gets under way in early 2017.

Under construction in the North Sea, the 402MW Dudgeon project is a joint venture between Statoil, Masdar and Statkraft. 19-May
