November 26, 2018

Denmark-based offshore wind farms service provider Fred. Olsen Windcarrier has marked a milestone in offshore wind turbine installation as it installed the 400th unit.

The turbine has been installed at Vattenfall’s Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm in Denmark using the jack-up vessel Brave Tern.

Horns Rev 3 will consist of a total of 49 V164-8.3 MW turbines from MHI Vestas Offshore Wind and will supply power to 425.000 Danish households once finished.

Recently Bold Tern finished the installation of 56 V164-8.3 MW turbines for Ørsted at Borkum Riffgrund 2 in Germany.

The two vessels have a wrap-around-the-leg offshore-rated cranes with 800t maximum lift at 26m. A typical payload for the vessel is 7,600t consisting of transition pieces and foundations or turbines, blades and tower sections.

Horns Rev 3 is scheduled to be fully operational early next year.

Building on almost 170 years of offshore and marine experience, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier was established in 2008 to service the growing offshore wind sector. The company currently owns and operates two class leading jack-up vessels and have installed more than 300 wind turbines in harsh offshore conditions.
