Marine contractor Jan De Nul Group today said that all 32 wind turbines have been installed at the 200-MW Trianel Borkum II offshore wind project in the German North Sea.
Jan De Nul Group was awarded the contract to install the turbines by wind turbine maker Senvion SA in December 2017, but the start of the installation works was delayed because of the German company’s insolvency proceedings. The first turbine was installed last summer.
Mechanical completion of the turbines was finalised by Jan De Nul Group and its subcontractor Global Wind Service and now they are ready for commissioning.
German municipal utilities network Trianel GmbH holds a 37.99% stake in the EUR-800-million (USD 886.7m) Trianel Borkum II, while utility EWE AG owns 37.5%. The remaining stake of 24.51% is held by Zurich-based municipal utility Elektrizitaetswerk der Stadt Zuerich (EWZ) and its investment partner Fontavis.
Trianel Borkum II is the second phase of the Borkum project. The first 200-MW facility was put into operation in 2015.
