BOKALIFT 2



Drydocks World will convert a drillship YAN into the offshore installation vessel Bokalift 2. This vessel is designed to carry out offshore operations for wind farm installations in Taiwan. The conversion scope includes the fabrication and installation of 9,000 tons of steel blocks on both sides of the vessel to increase the stability of the vessel and the installation of a new work deck, Boskalis said. A 4,000-ton crane will be installed on the vessel in 2021. This revolving crane will be capable of lifting structures more than 100 meterres high.

MV BOLDWIND



United Wind Logistics (UWL) has taken delivery of the deck carrier, MV BoldWind, which will shortly start her long-term charter with MHI Vestas Offshore Wind. The MV BoldWind will now start her maiden voyage from China to Europe. On the maiden voyage, the 148.5-metre vessel will carry wind turbine blades from China to Norway. BoldWind has a deadweight of 10,000 mtons, a deck length of 128 metres, and a width of 28 metres. She combines an optimized hull design and diesel electric propulsion to suit its dedicated service field, UWL said.

SVANEN



Van Oord’s heavy lift vessel Svanen has arrived at the Kriegers Flak offshore wind project in Denmark to begin the installation of monopile foundations. The monopiles, manufactured by EEW Special Pipe Constructions, will be transported floating from Rostock, Germany, to the project site. The transition pieces are produced by Bladt Industries in Aalborg, Denmark. Van Oord’s subsea rock installation vessel Bravenes started the installation of the seabed protection in April.

Moray East OFFSHORE WIND FARM

Jack-up vessel Apollo has left the Moray East OWF where it had been clearing the soil plugs from the pin-piles on the site. The vessel had previously installed 300 pies in preparation for the jacket foundations. Apollo re-visited each pile location to carry out the soil plug removal,  jacking up within the same footprint as during piling operations, and removing the build-up of soil inside the piles in readiness for jacket installation. Apollo used a mechanical grab, air lift tool and drill to remove the soil build up to the required depth for grout adhesion during the jacket installation campaign.

Equinor's New Jersey wind farm

Equinor Wind US has awarded a contract for geophysical survey services to MMT US Inc, a subsidiary of MMT Group AB. The contract covers high resolution geophysical, benthic surveys and shallow subsurface surveys for the planning and engineering of Equinor’s lease area offshore New England. The project will be performed utilising the Stril Explorer, which is equipped with the high-speed Surveyor Interceptor SROV, with survey operations expected to commence in late summer 2020. They are expected to run through to Q2 2021. The SROV Surveyor Interceptor has been developed by MMT and Reach Subsea.

Formosa 1 offshore wind project

The 35-metre Ventus Formosa will operate from Taichung. The vessel will support Siemens Gamesa’s full service agreement for the Formosa 1 offshore wind project. Penguin International built the SATV at its shipyard in Singapore and delivered it at the beginning of March. Ventus Formosa can accommodate up to twelve technicians and stay offshore for at least a week without the need for port calls. Ventus Marine, a joint venture between PSA Marine and Ta Tong Marine Group, is the owner of the SATV. The 128MW Formosa 1 wind farm consists of the 8MW Formosa 1 Phase 1, inaugurated in May 2017, and the 120MW Formosa 1 Phase 2 which was officially commissioned in November.

Germany raises offshore wind ambitions


The German federal government, coastal states and transmission system operators have signed a joint agreement to expand offshore wind development in the North and Baltic Seas. This offshore agreement lays the foundation for raising the country's target of offshore wind from 15 GW to 20 GW by 2030. The offshore agreement was concluded between the Federal Ministry of Economics, the President of the Federal Network Agency and the President of the Federal Office for Shipping and Hydrography, together with the Energy Minister and the Energy Ministers of the coastal countries, as well as the managing directors of the transmission system operators involved (50Hertz, Amprion and TenneT). Germany's Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) will continue to update the area development plan by the end of the year and identify the areas required for 20 GW of wind energy at sea.

Renova readies Japanese offshore wind farm

Japanese renewable energy developer Renova, Inc. is finalising its contracting and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for its Akita Yurihonjo offshore wind farm ahead of Japan's upcoming offshore wind auction in H2 2020. The Akita Yurihonjo  project is being developed by Akita Yurihonjo Offshore Wind GK (AYOW), a joint venture company owned by RENOVA, Cosmo Eco Power Co., Ltd., JR-EAST Energy Development Co., Ltd. and Tohoku Electric Power Co., Inc. Amidst the outbreak of COVID-19 in Japan, Renova established an office in Yurihonjo in order to raise local awareness surrounding its project and increase its local presence in Yurihonjo. The wind farm has been under development since 2015 and a project plan was drawn up based on the Second Phase of Akita Prefectural Strategy for New Energy Industries formulated by Akita Prefecture in 2016.

Irish offshore wind projects step closer to reality


Ireland's Minister for Housing and Urban Development, Damien English, T.D, and the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, Richard Bruton, T.D. have announced that seven offshore wind projects have been designated as Relevant Projects. These are offshore wind projects that either applied for or were granted a lease under the Foreshore Act 1933, or offshore wind projects that are eligible to be processed to receive a valid grid connection offer. The announcement means developers can continue to work and update a number of aspects of their projects so that they will be in a position to apply under the new marine planning regime, which will be introduced under the Marine Planning and Development Management Bill, 2020.

installation of Saint Nazaire's offshore substation

The installation of Saint Nazaire's offshore substation is due to start in summer 2020, despite COVID-19 impacts. Chantiers de l'Atlantique started production for the offshore substation in January 2020 but for the past few weeks work has had to be suspended due to the health situation. Located 12-20 kilometres off the Loire-Atlantique coast, France, the 480 MW Saint Nazaire wind farm will feature 80 GE Haliade 150-6MW turbines with commissioning expected in 2022. All teams on the future wind farm's construction site have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. "We do not yet know the repercussions of this virus on construction," stated project Director Olivier de La Laurencie. Chantiers de l'Atlantique is responsible for the topside and jacket-type foundation design, manufacturing and commissioning.

Final turbine installed Trianel Windpark Borkum II

Sunday 17 May 2020 marked the final turbine installation at Trianel Windpark Borkum II. The last big components were installed on Saturday, and the final bolt and nut early on Sunday morning. Turbine installation was originally expected to be completed last year. However, bad weather during the autumn and winter months, as well as the insolvency of turbine supplier Senvion massively hampered the construction schedule. Installation of the 32 Senvion 6.2 M152 offshore wind turbines started in August 2019, using Jan De Nul's jack-up installation vessel Tailevent. Back in February, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier was contracted to install the remaining 11 Senvion 6.2M152 turbines on Trianel Windpark Borkum II. Related company, Global Wind Service, was already on the project delivering technicians, QA and Site Management for the installation and mechanical completion of all 32 turbines.

Kriegers Flak to kick off



Offshore construction at the Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm is due to start next week with installation of the monopile foundations. Van Oord's 8,000-tonne heavy lift installation vessel Svanen is due to arrive on site on 11th May. Vattenfall secured rights to the 604.8 MW project in November 2016, with a winning bid of EUR 49.9 per MWh. The Danish Energy Agency recently approved the retail project design and granted the final EIA permit and Construction License to Vattenfall in February 2020. Located 15-40 km offshore in the Danish Baltic Sea, the Kriegers Flak wind farm is set to feature 72 Siemens Gamesa SG 8.0-167 DD turbines, each with a rotor diameter of 167 metres and tip height of 188 metres, and monopile foundations. Rostock-based EEW finalized production of the foundations in late 2019.
