HAPPY BIRTHDAY - NINE YEARS GRS

GRS Turnkey Fixture
On July 4th we celebrated 9 years of GRS! We are proud of what we have achieved so far. From a small 2-man office to the world's leading opinion leader for renewable energies offshore.
Without the support and loyalty of our customers, friends, partners and our strong team we would not have been able to achieve this - many thanks!

BRAVE TERN



Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-up vessel Brave Tern has arrived in Taiwan to work on the Yunlin offshore wind project. On 20 April, Brave Tern began its journey from the Port of Esbjerg in Denmark to Taiwan to transport and install turbines at the Yunlin wind farm. The 640 MW project will feature 80 Siemens Gamesa 8.0-167 DD turbines located some six kilometers off the Taiwanese southwest coast. After installing the Yunlin wind turbines, Brave Tern will transport and install the 62 MHI Vestas V174-9.5 MW turbines at the Changfang and Xidao offshore wind farms.

SIEM BARRACUDA



Siem Offshore’s vessel Siem Barracuda has been demobilised from the Merkur offshore wind farm and left the project on 8 July. The Offshore Subsea Construction Vessel (OSCV) has been in service at the German offshore wind farm for almost two years, under a contract with GE Renewable Energy. The equipment fitted onto the vessel for work at the Merkur site has been taken off, including an Ampelmann gangway, which was dismantled and loaded onto Cargow’s vessel Sigyn W to be returned to Rotterdam, according to DHSS.

WINDEA JULES VERNE



Bernhard Schulte’s SOV Windea Jules Verne has started working at the Merkur offshore wind farm in Germany. Windea Jules Verne will support operations and maintenance of the 66 GE Haliade 150-6 MW turbines, which were commissioned in June last year. GE Renewable Energy contracted Bernhard Schulte to provide an SOV for Merkur in July 2018, after which the German vessel owner and operator placed an order with Ulstein. Ulstein Verft began working on the SOV in September 2019 and completed final tests and sea trials at the shipyard in Norway this spring.

Trianel Windpark Borkum II fully operational

Exactly two years after construction began, all turbines are now spinning at the Trianel Windpark Borkum II. Each turbine stands roughly 105m tall, with a rated power of 6.15 MW. 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.

Installation Begins at TPC Changhua Wind Farm

Jan De Nul has begun the offshore installation activities at Taiwan Power Company’s Changhua Phase 1 offshore wind project in Taiwan. The company installed the first 12 pin piles out of 44 in the first phase of the work using Heerema Marine Contractors’ vessel Aegir. Forty more pin piles will be shipped from the fabrication yard in South Korea to Taiwan in the coming weeks, Jan De Nul said. In addition, Jan De Nul’s cable-laying vessel Willem de Vlamingh started with the installation of the submarine export cables, and the first out of four cables was pulled to the onshore junction box near Fangyuan. 

East Anglia One Now Officially Fully Operational

The final phase of East Anglia One has started to receive payments under the project’s Contract for Difference (CfD), thus passing the milestone of Operational Conditions Precedent to officially start generating electricity under the CfD scheme. The final, third phase of East Anglia One has an installed capacity of 250 MW and achieved its generation start date on 30 May.The first of the 102 Siemens Gamesa 7 MW turbines began generating power and delivering it to the onshore substation at Burstall, near Bramford, in September 2019. The project was later partially commissioned and passed the first CfD milestone in February. In April, the final of the 102 turbines was installed.

Thai Company Takes 50% Stake in Borkum Riffgrund 2

The Thailand-based Gulf Energy Development Public Company has acquired a 50% interest in the Borkum Riffgrund 2 offshore wind farm in Germany.

The contract came into effect on 3 July. The remaining 50% is held by Ørsted.

Array cables installed for Borssele 1&2

Ørsted and Van Oord have installed all 94 array cables connecting the turbines of the Borssele 1&2 offshore wind farm. The installation started, ahead of schedule, in February this year. The cables were installed by Van Oord’s cable-laying vessel Nexus. Next month, Van Oord and Ørsted also expect to finalise the cable burial campaign with Van Oord’s trencher Dig-It. The 94 cables were fabricated by Nexans.

RWE officially takes over Innogy

The major asset swap between RWE and E.ON has been completed, with RWE officially taking over the innogy activities. As a result the wind, solar and hydropower businesses as well as the biomass, biogas and gas storage activities have been transferred to RWE. In the autumn of 2019, RWE acquired E.ON's renewable energy activities, and now the last step is being taken by integrating innogy's operations.

Parkwind Orders Arcadis Ost 1 Monopile Foundations at Steelwind

Offshore wind developer Parkwind has signed a contract with Steelwind for the fabrication of the monopile foundations for the Arcadis Ost 1 offshore wind farm. The contract was signed at Steelwind’s headquarters in Nordenham, Germany. This signature follows Parkwind’s recent order of the wind farm’s offshore substation at Bladt Industries. Under the contract, Steelwind will deliver a total of 28 next-generation, XXL monopile foundations for the project. One of the foundations will support the wind farm’s offshore substation, the remaining 27 will be wind turbine foundations.

MHI Vestas issues further contracts in Taiwan

MHI Vestas Offshore Wind has reached agreements with local Taiwanese suppliers to source both fasteners and cables for its offshore wind turbines. The company stated that it is the only wind turbine manufacturer to source fasteners and cables locally, following the signing of agreements with Boltun Corporation (Boltun) for fasteners and Walsin Lihwa Corporation for cables. These agreements will see Boltun and Walsin Lihwa Corporation supply MHI Vestas for CIP-developed wind projects – Changfang Phase 2 and Xidao – to be delivered off the coast of Taiwan beginning in 2023.

First turbine spins at SeaMade


The first turbine is spinning at the SeaMade offshore wind farm in the Belgian North Sea. With a 487 MW capacity, SeaMade is the largest offshore wind farm in Belgium. Offshore construction of the SeaMade wind farm started in September 2019, with the last foundation installed in January 2020, followed by connection via subsea cables. DEME’s DP2 offshore installation vessel Apollo is installing the 58 Siemens Gamesa 8.4 MW turbines on the monopile foundations. It is loading wind turbine components from the Renewable Energy Base Ostend (REBO), which is used as the marshalling harbour for the project.
