Topside touchdown at Riffgrund 2
HSM Offshore delivers 5250-tonnes offshore high voltage substation platform for 450 MW project.
On 25 June 2018 the topside for the offshore substation at Orsted's 450MW Borkum Riffgrund 2 wind farm in the German North Sea was installed.
Heerema Marine Contractors heavy-lift crane Thialf placed the 2500-tonne unit on a jacket that was also fabricated by HSM Offshore and installed last summer at the project site some 34 km off Borkum island.
The project marks the first delivery of HSM Offshore in the German sector and was completed in time.
The wind farm will also be linked to Orsted’s neighbouring 312MW Borkum Riffgrund 1 project, while, in August, the project will be connected to the 900MW DolWin 3 platform. The project is slated to be fully commissioned in 2019.
