Fred Olsen joins Hornsea fleet
Windcarrier on turbine duty alongside A2Sea at 1.2GW wind farm
Fred Olsen Windcarrier is to install around half of the turbines at Dong Energy’s 1.2GW Hornsea 1 offshore wind farm in the UK.
The company will tackle transport and installation of Siemens 7MW turbines at the Round 3 wind farm off Yorkshire, which will be the largest in the world when complete.
A2Sea has already been roped to provide a similar service in the first phase of the 174-turbine project.
“This is a very exciting project for us as it is the first large transport and installation project we will have worked on in the UK,” said head of commercial and projects Even Larsen.
“Not only that but it is our first project working with Dong . . . and hope it will be the start for a long and strong relationship between us and the leading offshore wind development company in the world.”
