Fred. Olsen Windcarrier nets first UK installation deal with Hornsea Project One
Fred. Olsen Windcarrier has won a contract for transport and installation of Siemens 7MW turbines at DONG Energy’s Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm.
Under the contract, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier will install approximately half of the 174 turbines, while the remainder will be installed by A2SEA, which was awarded the contract on Tuesday, 10 May.
“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 Energy Wind Power.”
Hornsea Project One is located approximately 60 nautical miles east of Hull in the North East of England and will generate 1.2GW of power in total.
