Ørsted gives Borssele-contract to GoaSea
Ørsted has given DEME GeoSea a contract regarding transportation and installation of 94 foundations and wind turbines on the Borssele 1 and 2 wind farm in Holland.
Borssele 1 and 2 is located 23 km from Holland’s coast and will have a total capacity of 752 MW.
"We are happy that Ørsted has chosen GeoSea for the biggest wind farm project in Holland.
The contract reflects our leading position as suppliers of unique, integrated solutions for the offshore wind industry” says chief of offshore renewables at GeoSea, Jan Klaassen,
The foundation for the 94 wind turbines is a monopile foundation, where a bolted transition piece is installed. The water depths range from 14 to 36 meters.
Under the terms of a separate contract, A2SEA, part of GeoSea, will also provide capacity to transport to and install 94 Siemens Gamesa 8 MW turbines on the wind farm. The monopile foundation and turbine installation is planned for 2020, using vessels from the GeoSea fleet.
