The last of 77 MHI Vestas V164-9.5 MW turbines has now been installed at the Borssele III/IV project site in the Dutch North Sea.
Overcoming a multitude of COVID-related challenges, MHI Vestas Offshore Wind (MHI Vestas) has now completed installation of the final turbine at the Borssele III/IV offshore wind project. The last of 77 V164-9.5 MW turbines was secured on-site on Thursday 26th November.
The final set of turbines will now undergo commissioning and testing in preparation for full power generation.
“While installing turbines at Borssele III/IV, we have overcome a number of challenges arising from COVID,” said Laurens van Pijkeren, MHI Vestas Project Director. “Not only have we needed to adjust our way of working on the installation vessel, but even the transport of technicians to the project has been an international challenge. Therefore, we are very pleased and proud to safely install all 77 V164 turbines on time and to now prepare for the full commissioning of this significant project for the Netherlands.”
Following full commissioning, MHI Vestas holds a 15-year service agreement to operate and maintain the Borssele III/IV project.
