GRS’ market analysis spotlights three upcoming offshore wind markets you might have not studied yet: Romania, Brazil and Australia.  Read the full article here.
GRS Market Research


The potential for off-shore wind farm development is huge, in theory the potential lies at around 76 GW of offshore wind capa-city in total including a significant amount of floating projects.


In total nine offshore projects are under development. The overall capacity of aforementioned nine projects accumulates to a total volume of approximately 20 GW offshore wind energy.


The first Australian offshore project "Star of the South" with a total capacity of up to two GW is currently under development which would enter construction phase in 2023 earliest.

Siemens Gamesa has extended the charter of Eidesvik Offshore’s service operation vessel (SOV) Acergy Viking. The long-term contract will commence in direct continuation of the current contract extending the firm period until the end of January 2027. Eidesvik entered into an agreement with Siemens Gamesa for the deployment of Acergy Viking in February 2016, when it was chartered for a period of nine months on German offshore wind projects.


Esvagt’s service operation vessel (SOV) newbuilding, NHST-146, is now ready to start working for Vestas at Borssele 3 & 4 and Northwester 2 wind farms, the Danish offshore support specialist said. NHST-146, the first of the three SOV newbuildings for Vestas, is ready and accepted by the Class and by Esvagt, and has been ready at its base port in Oostende, Belgium, since 8 Jan-uary. All three vessels are of the Havyard 831 L SOV design.


Huisman has signed a Letter of Intent with Yantai CIMC Raffles Offshore Ltd. for the delivery of a 2,600mt Leg Encircling Crane for OIM Wind’s BT-220IU Wind Installation Unit. With its 140-metres-long boom and 2,600mt lifting capacity, this crane enables OIM Wind to install the next generation wind turbine generators and foundations safely and efficiently, Huisman said. The crane will have a main hook height of 165 metres above deck and 195 metres above sea leve.

Blauwind celebrates Borssele 3&4 commissioning

The Borssele 3&4 offshore wind farm in the Dutch North Sea has reached full commissioning. Located about 55 kilometres from the Port of Vlissingen, the 731.5 MW wind farm is capable of powering around 825,000 Dutch households with renewable electricity or 2.3% of total Dutch electricity demand.
The project reached full commissioning on 6th January following installation of the last MHI Vestas V164-9.5 MW turbine in late November by Van Oord’s offshore installation vessel Aeolus. Monopile installation began in October 2019 and first power was achieved on 7th August 2020.

F1.2 GW Polish wind farm secures grid agreement

Elektroenergetyczne for its 1.2 GW Baltic Power offshore wind farm. The agreement marks another mile-stone in preparations for the wind farm project, providing a guarantee that energy generated by offshore wind can be fed into the national power system. The ORLEN Group is making preparations for the construction of an offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea with a capacity of up to 1.2 GW. The project will be located approximately 23 kilometres off the coast of Łeba and Choczewo. The elec-tricity generated by the wind farm will be exported via an underground cable connection linking the turbines with an on-shore power station.

ESVAGT’s new SOV ready for action

ESVAGT’s SOV newbuild is now ready to start working for Vestas at the Borssele 3&4 and Northwester 2 wind farms. NHST-146, the first of three SOV newbuildings for Vestas, is ready and accepted by the Class and by ESVAGT, and has been ready at its base port in Oostende since 8 January. The process prior to vessel completion was atypical, says Project Director Gerner Eskelund. This lasted until the autumn, when the shipyard in Norway was forced to shut down due to Covid-19. In total, around 20% of the shipyard’s workers tested positive, and the shipyard had to wait several weeks before reopening, once the health authorities had introduced a series of intensified guidelines around control and work processes.
