On 19th May 2016, A2SEA’s Sea Challenger completed the installation of 97 Siemens 6MW turbines at DONG Energy’s Gode Wind 2+1 OWF in the German part of the North Sea.

“The turbine installation has progressed seamlessly and as planned throughout the winter. We experienced some rough and challenging weather during January and February but thanks to the entire project team including our experienced crew both offshore and onshore and our partners on the project, Siemens Wind Power and client DONG Energy, we managed to deliver safely, on time and on budget,” says Jens Frederik Hansen, CEO in A2SEA.

Sea Challenger’s next project is turbine installation on the 402MW Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm in the UK for Statoil, Masdar and Statkraft. First, the vessel will act as accommodation vessel for the project from September until turbine installation is planned to start in the beginning of 2017. 

The Gode Wind 2+1 Offshore Wind Farm is Germany’s largest offshore wind farm to date with a capacity of 582MW. When fully commissioned, the offshore wind farm will provide green energy to approx. 600.000 German households.
