Blue Tern readies for Trianel Windpark Borkum II

Trianel Windpark Borkum II

Fred. Olsen Windcarrier's jack-up installation vessel Blue Tern has been loaded with a batch of turbine blades for Trianel Windpark Borkum II.

The vessel was recently chartered to install the remaining 11
Senvion 6.2M152 turbines at the site. Each turbine will stand roughly 105 metres tall, with a rated power of 6.15 MW.

The TWB II project covers an area of 33km2 and will have a capacity of  203 MW when complete. It is located 45 km off the northern coast of Borkum Island, Germany.  Originally expected to be completed by the end of 2019, the project is now expected to be completed in the first half of 2020. According to the developers, the insolvency of Senvion, who was responsible for the delivery, installation, and commissioning of wind turbines, led to a massive delay on the construction schedule.

TWB II is located in the direct vicinity of the 200 MW
Trianel Windpark Borkum I project, which consists of 40 turbines and has been in operation since summer 2015.
