Edda mistral

The Service Operation Vessel (SOV) Edda Mistral has left the Ria del Eo, Spain, to head towards the Port of Gijón where the vessel will complete her sea trials over the next weeks. Built by Spain’s Gondan for the Norwegian shipowner Østensjø Rederi A / S, Edda Mistral will operate on Ørsted’s Hornsea Project One wind farm in the UK. Her sister vessel, Edda Passat, also built by Gondan for Østensjø Rederi, is deployed on Ørsted’s Race Bank wind farm in the UK. Both vessels have contracts for a fixed period of five years, plus five one-year options. With 81m in length and a 17m beam, the vessels have the capacity to accommodate a crew of up to 20 people and up to 40 technicians who will perform maintenance tasks at the wind farms. Both vessels are equipped with a 23-meter-long Uptime heave compensated walk-to-work gangway, a 3D compensated crane and a CTV landing system with bunkering facility. In addition to the gangway, the vessels are equipped with a Helideck and an 11m daughter craft.

Orsted plan to embark on a sediment sampling campaign for the Hornsea Project Four offshore wind farm next month. The company has applied to the UK Marine Management Organization for a marine license to take up to 30 samples during a geotechnical campaign due to commence on the 11th September until 31st December. A vessel will deploy either a mini-Hamon or day grab sampler to take cores of less than 1m3 within the prescoping boundary of the array and export cable corridor. The Hornsea Four offshore area is 860km2, and has a potential capacity of 3.6GW. Orsted are currently considering the number and size of turbines and their locations so that it can develop its consenting strategy. The cable route is likely to be 100-120 km with 20-30km of onshore cable to the substation at Cottingham. Orsted has begun stakeholder engagement and has appointed Environmental Consultants and a legal team to help progress with a consent application.

guangdong celebrates first wind farm

The first offshore wind project in the Guangdong Province, the Zhuhai Guishan Demonstration project, was fully commissioned on the 14th August. Third Harbour Engineering Co., Ltd. undertook construction work with the last turbine installed on the on 14th May 2018. The project features 34 Mingyang and United Power (SCD 3MW and UP3000-108 3MW) turbines with total capacity of 120MW and represents an investment of ¥4450m (€568.75m). Over the past couple of months 13 projects under development in the Guangdong province have been picking up the pace. The Zhuhai Jinwan project has received approval from the Zhuhai Development and Reform Commission, turbine installation is underway at the Yudean Zhanjiang Wailuo windfarm and tenders are being held for survey and design work for the Huaneng Lemen 2 project. Earlier this year the Guangdong province announced an ambitious offshore wind development plan for the development of 23 projects with a total planned capacity of 66.85GW accounting for around 50% of China’s total planned capacity.

Vineyard wind achieves record low price 

It has been announced that the first large-scale US offshore wind farm, the 800MW Vineyard Wind project, will deliver electricity at $65/MWh (€56/MWh). This is $100/MWh below the predicted maximum and significantly lower than the 30 MW Block Island project in Rhode Island which signed a PPA of $244/MWh. Vineyard Wind and the Massachusetts’ Electric Distribution Companies concluded long-term contract negotiations last week stating that the project will save consumers 1.5% on their monthly energy bills. The contracts will be delivered in two phases with the first 400MW phase coming online in 2022 and the second 400MW phase in 2023. Vineyard Wind has begun supply chain investigations and recently participated in its first series of ‘meet the buyer’ events. The developer is also working on drafting a supplement to the Environmental Impact Report which was submitted to the state in April and BOEM are expected to release the Draft Environmental Impact Statement this autumn.

Vattenfall says goodbye to utgrunden

Dismantling of Vattenfall’s oldest wind farm, Utgrunden, will be completed by the end of August. The 10.5MW project was built in 2000 and acquired by Vattenfall from Ørsted in 2006. Located in Kalmarsund, it features seven Enron Wind 70/1500 1.5MW turbines and 11km of subsea cabling. Vattenfall decided against repowering the project explaining that the turbines are of extremely low power compared to current models. For example, the Enron turbine has a rotor diameter of 70m whilst the new MHI Vestas V164-9.5 MW model has a 164m rotor diameter. According to Vattenfall the site is too small to accommodate turbines of such scale and it would be too expensive to modernize the plant. The Utgrunden turbines were disconnected on the 14th June and WIND PIONEER arrived on site in mid-July to begin the multimillion dismantling process. The monopile foundations and cables are also due to be completely removed by the end of the month.

South korea to build first floating turbine

Ulsan City plan begin construction of South Korea’s first floating offshore wind turbine this year with installation during H1 2019. The 750kW UNISON 750/U57 turbine will be 46m long and 80m high. It will be located off the coast of Seogyeonmyeon, Ulsansi where average wind speeds are 8.5m/s and water depths are at least 40m. The aim of the project is to demonstrate the feasibility of the technology prior to the potential deployment of a 200MW floating offshore windfarm. South Korea is new to the offshore wind market but has ambition. The country’s first commercial scale offshore wind farm, the 30MW Tamra project, was commissioned last year and the country has a potential 3GW of capacity in the pipeline. Swedish multiturbine platform designer Hexicon AB recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Busan Techno Park and Renewable Energy Center for the development of floating offshore wind in South Korea.

over halfway at the rentel wind

Turbine installation at the 309MW Rentel offshore wind farm is steaming ahead. According to Otary, the majority owner of the project, 28 of the 42 SWT-7.0-154 turbines have been installed and are all exporting power to the grid. The turbines have a nominal capacity of 7MW which can be boosted to 7.35MW under the correct conditions. Each blade is 75m long with a tip height of 196m above LAT making them the tallest offshore wind turbines in Belgium. The total weight of the rotor, nacelle and tower is 950 tons, which is equivalent to 75 double-decker buses. DEME’s installation vessel Sea Installer is currently operating out of Ostend and all the turbines are expected to be in the field and operational before end of summer. Otary is also developing the Seamade (Seastar and Mermaid) sites representing a total capacity of over 800MW to be constructed in Belgium over the next two years.

Kvaerner and innogy dispute still ongoing

Norwegian engineering and construction company, Kvaerner and Innogy are still butting heads regarding the dispute over the supply of jackets for the Nordsee Ost offshore wind farm, located 35km off the coast of Helgoland. Kvaerner were contracted to manufacture and deliver 48 jacket foundations in June 2010 for €75million. Installation of the first jacket commenced in October 2012, the last jackets were delivered in October 2013 and foundation installation finished in March 2014. The dispute arose when Kvaerner asked for compensation for additional costs and change in scope of work. In 2012, arbitration was filed by Kvaerner against Innogy. Still ongoing six years later, Kvaerner has stated that the ‘arbitration process for the project will take time due to high complexity’ and that ‘it is currently still not possible to estimate when the arbitration will be finalized or the expected financial outcome’.

Hammer time for new noise reducing tech

New noise reducing pile hammer technology has been successfully tested off the coast of the Netherlands by the Carbon Trust, Fistuca and multiple industry partners. The BLUE 25M hammer utilizes a large water tank to provide a more energetic, but quieter blow. It is designed to reduce underwater noise levels by up to 20 dB and is predicted to reduce the fatigue damage during installation of piles by up to 90%. Van Oord’s HLV Svanen tested the hammer on 13th August within the Borssele wind farm zone. Noise pollution from offshore wind farm construction is a hot topic at the moment. The UK Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is currently undertaking a review of consents for offshore wind farms within an area of the North Sea to be designated for the protection of harbour porpoises. This review could see consents being altered or revoked. BEIS is due to publish a Habitats Regulations Assessment this summer and will assess the potential noise pollution from selected wind farms.
