OFFSHORE VESSELS

SEAWAY                        STRASHNOV



Seaway Strashnov arrived on the site in early January to install the 90 monopile foundations and transition pieces with the first installed by 17 January. Other new arrivals include Boka Falcon which is clearing boulders from the seabed and fall pipe vessel Bravenes which is installing scour protection at the turbine locations. Last Friday, Service Operations Vessel (SOV) Esvagt Froude started its two-year contract for Innogy, supporting construction work. In early 2021, the vessel will be joined by another Esvagt SOV, which has a 15-year turbine O&M contract with MHI Vestas on the site. GeoSea will start the installation of the 90 V164-9.5 MW turbines in September 2020, with DP2 INNOVA-TION the most likely contender for the work.

GRAND CANYON III



Grand Canyon III is currently mobilising in Blyth prior to deployment to Neart na Gaoithe OWF to assist Glomar Wave with the recovery of a dropped object. The work is not expect to take more than a day. Glomar Wave is carrying out a UXO survey, which started in December last year and is due to continue through to April. Recently Fugro completed near shore survey work using jack-up barge Wavewalker 1. Installation of the 54 jacket foundations is expected to start in 2021 with Saipem 7000 booked. The tur-bine work will follow in 2022, with Fred. Olsen’s Blue Tern scheduled to install the Siemens Gamesa SG 8.0-167 DD units. Commissioning of the 448 MW site owned by EDF Energy Renewables is due to take place by the end of 2023.

FRED. OLSEN WINDCARRIER



Fred. Olsen Windcarrier has completed its first-ever offshore wind cable job. The first cable job was carried out in January when the company’s jack-up vessel Brave Tern joined two power cables at the Albatros offshore wind farm in Germany for Prysmian. According to Fred. Olsen Windcarrier, the vessel is currently working on a cable job also for Prysmian. The EnBW Albatros project comprises 16 Siemens Gamesa SWT-7.0-154 turbines located some 104km off the coast of Germany. The 112MW offshore wind farm commenced operations at the beginning of January.

JAPANESE PROJECT REACHES FINANCIAL CLOSE

Akita Offshore Wind Corporation (AOW) has reached financial close for offshore wind farms Akita Port and Noshiro Port in Japan, and is to commence construction this month. With a combined capacity of 140 MW, the two sites are expected to form the first large-scale offshore wind project in Japanese waters. MHI Vestas is likely to supply 33 V117-4.2 MW turbines, which will be installed by Seajacks. The loan consists of project finance provided by multiple domestic and foreign financial insti-tutions including MUFG Bank, Ltd., Mizuho Bank, Ltd. and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation. The overall project cost is estimated at ¥100 billion (€832 million). Onshore construction is due to start February 2020 and commercial operations will start in 2022.

INNOGY BOOSTS KASKASI CAPACITY

Innogy has received approval to increase the capacity of its Kaskasi offshore wind farm, located 33km off the coast of Heligoland in the German North Sea. The German Federal Network Agency has authorised an additional 17 MW of offshore wind capacity to be connected via transmission system NOR-4-2 for pilot wind turbines. Innogy was originally awarded the rights to develop the project in the second German offshore wind auction in 2018 with a connection capacity of 325 MW. It then applied for approval of the 17 MW expansion in July 2019. Innogy hopes to install 38 SGRE SG 8.0-167 turbines with a rated capacity of 8.6 MW and power boost poten-tial to 9 MW. Each turbine will have a rotor diameter of 167m and a hub height of 107.5m. Innogy currently owns 100% of the project but is reviewing options regarding the future own-ership structure. Financial Close is expected later this year, with offshore construction in 2021 and commissioning in 2022.

PUBLIC DEBATE PHASE TWO STARTS FOR NORMANDY

The public debate for the siting of a 1 GW offshore wind farm off the coast of Normandy has progressed to the second phase. The consultation is part of the new procedure (Société de confiance) for public participation prior to deciding the location of the wind farm and the competi-tive bidding procedure with the aim of reducing the level of opposition experienced by the first generation of French wind farms. The aim is to identify a final 300 km2 wind farm area from a macro-zone of 10,500 km2 to build the 1 GW windfarm which will likely feature 65-80 tur-bines with a rated power of 12-15 MW. The first consulta-tion phase, launched in November, was devoted to knowledge sharing and open discussions on several major topics such as the coexistence of the activities at sea, environmental impacts, visual impacts and the electrical connections. The second phase will run until 28th March and will focus on the maps and characteristics of potential areas for development. The third and final phase of the debate will conclude in May.

TENNET SET HKN TENDER SCHEDULE


In the coming months, TenneT plans to sign contracts for the offshore platform and cables to connect the Hollandse Kust Noord (HKN) offshore wind farm. The transmission system is based on TenneT’s standardised AC design, with 220 kV cabling and a 700 MW offshore substation to convert the voltage level from 66-220 kV. The signing of con-tracts for the subsea cables and the offshore platform will take place Q2 2020. The jacket foundation and cabling are scheduled to be installed in Q1 2022, and the platform topside in Q3 2022 and commissioning of the transmission system in 2023. The wind farm is the last of five tendered by the Dutch Government under the 2013 Energy Agree-ment, which specifies that 3.5 GW of offshore wind capacity will be connected by 2023. The government has subse-quently committed to building a further ~7 GW by 2030. The subsidy-free bidding window for HKN will run from 2nd-30th April. Results are then expected within 13 weeks.

OFGEM TO REJIG OFFSHORE GRID


Ofgem, the UK energy regulator, has published its Decar-bonisation Action Plan, which sets out plans to grow the renewables market and support development of an off-shore grid that enables a four-fold increase in offshore wind generation by 2030. Ofgem will work with the Electricity System Operator (ESO) to assess different options and any required changes to existing regulatory frame-work and the offshore transmission regime. This will include considering a more coordinated approach to off-shore networks. To date, projects have been connected via individual transmission links but as more wind farms are built and further from shore there is potential for efficiencies from greater coordination of offshore trans-mission infrastructure. Ahead of COP26, in Glasgow in November 2020, the UK has upped its climate ambition, including increasing offshore wind targets to 40 GW by 2030 and moving the ban on electric and diesel cars for-ward to 2035.

STATKRAFT SEEKS SURVEY PERMIT FOR IRISH ARRAY

Statkraft has applied to the Irish Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government for an investigative fore-shore license for the 530 MW North Irish Sea Array wind farm (NISA), located 7.3 km from Rush, County Dublin. Statkraft acquired the project in 2018 when it purchased Element Power Group’s Irish and UK operations. Prior to this Gaelectric was leading project development and had conducted multiple site surveys and produced an EIA from a desktop study. Statkraft hope to conduct further site investigations to inform the engineering and detailed design of the wind farm in order to engage with the sup-ply chain so as to participate in a Renewable Electricity Support Scheme (RESS) auction. Work includes geophysical, geotechnical, MetOcean, LiDAR, ecological and ar-chaeological surveys which will start from summer 2020 and will be phased over five years as the project reaches the construction stage.

VINEYARD WIND PUSHES BACK COD

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has informed the Vineyard Wind project that the publication of its Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) has been delayed. The official notice of availability of the FEIS was expected June 2020 and has been until No-vember. Vineyard Wind is a joint venture owned 50% by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) and 50% by Avangrid Renewables. The 800 MW array, located 14 miles (24km) from Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, will feature 84 V164-9.5 MW turbines. Lars Pedersen, CEO of Vineyard Wind, commented: “While we need to analyze what a longer permitting timeline will mean for beginning construction, commercial operation in 2022 is no longer expected.”

BORWIN3 HANDED OVER TO TENNET

The BorWin3 grid connection project has been handed over to TenneT by general contractors Siemens and Petro-fac. The 900 MW project will convert power generated by the 497 MW Hohe See and 400 MW Global Tech 1 off-shore wind farms into direct current and transmit it 130 km to Hamswehrum and, from there, a further 30 km onshore to Emden/East. The 18,000 tonne topside was manufactured in Dubai and transported over a 12,000 km route to the North Sea. The Global Tech 1 project was previously connected to BorWin2 but was rerouted to BorWin3 in Summer 2019. Available capacity on BorWin2 is now connected to Albatros and Deutsche Bucht to ena-ble more efficient use of the German offshore grid. To date TenneT has connected 7.132 GW of offshore wind capacity in the German North Sea, exceeding federal expansion targets.
