On 31 August 2018, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-up installation vessel Bold Tern successfully installed the final turbine, completing the installation of MHI Vestas turbines at the Borkum Riffgrund 2 Offshore Wind Farm ahead of schedule.
The 56 V164-8.0MW turbines will have a total output of 450MW.
“It has been a pleasure to work with the crew from Fred. Olsen Windcarrier. Bold Tern has performed very well installing the 8 MW turbines. The combination of a competent and proactive crew and an experienced installation team from MHI Vestas has led to fast installation times throughout the project. We are very satisfied with the whole team which is reflected in the project finishing ahead of schedule,” James Gibbs, Offshore Installation Manager, Ørsted said.
