Ten months after the final assembly of the offshore substation (OSS) for the new Deutsche Bucht offshore wind farm started at Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen (DSV), the substation topside has now been moved outside the construction hall so that further outfitting can take place.

The Deutsche Bucht offshore wind farm, owned by Northland Power, will have 33 turbines, situated 95 kilometers northwest of Germany’s Borkum Island, in the North Sea. The wind farm will have a total capacity of 269 MW.

Van Oord is managing the overall Balance of Plant scope, including the OSS project, with the joint venture Iemants-Eiffage contracted for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the substation topside and jacket. Together with Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding, DSV is managing the yard facilities and supporting the OSS works by providing welding and painting services.

Offshore installation is planned in the first half of 2019.
