Scottish outfit Attollo Offshore has deployed an accommodation vessel at Orsted’s 450MW Borkum Riffgrund 2 offshore wind farm in the German North Sea.

The vessel will provide accommodation and construction support for the connection and commissioning of the project's high voltage substation, Attollo said. 

Attollo Offshore managing director Ben Moore said: “Attollo is delighted to be a part of this ground-breaking project. In comparison to the 4MW turbines used within Borkum Riffgrund 1, the Borkum Riffgrund 2’s 8MW turbines are the ultimate demonstration of the innovation and growing ambitions of Orsted and the global offshore wind industry for a green energy future.”

Borkum Riffgrund 2 deputy construction project manager Dennis Bormann said: “With Attollo Offshore operating the Atlantic Amsterdam, we have extensive flexibility for the commissioning works on our BKR02 OSS topside, in terms of accommodation, storage, power supply and the whole logistical set-up.

“The crew is well trained and experienced, capable of conducting complex lifting operations, as well as ad-hoc tasks. This has allowed us to focus on getting our power production to run in time.”
