GeoSea’s jack-up vessel Apollo is en route to the Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm to support the foundation installation campaign. It was expected to arrive on site on 18th January 2019. The vessel is equipped with four 106.8m long lattice legs that allow it to work at depths up to 70m.  It has been designed for wind turbine and foundation installation, decommissioning and heavy-load transportation. GeoSea, part of the DEME Group, is one of the main contractors on the site and it deployed two vessels, INNOVATION and SEA INSTALLER, to carry out the foundation work which began in January 2018. A total of 174 foundations are to be installed at the wind farm, each one consisting of a monopile and transition piece. EEW Special Pipe Constructions GmbH is responsible for the delivery of all 174 monopiles whilst Bladt Industries, EEW OSB and Steelwind Nordenham GmbH deliver the transition pieces.

Foundation installation the DEUTSCHE BUCHT offshore wind farm has been completed with all 31 units now in place. Work began in September this year, and was completed according to the planned timeframe. The foundations, which consist of a monopile and transition piece, were installed using Seajack's latest jack-up vessel SCYLLA. The monopiles, measuring an average of 78m in length, were manufactured by EEW SPC GmbH in Rostock and loaded directly onto the installation vessel. The transition pieces, which measure 26m in height and serve as connecting elements to the 8.4 MW wind turbine, were transported to Cuxhaven for interim storage after being manufactured by Windar and Idesa in Spain. A further two Mono Bucket foundations are to be erected during the second quarter of this year. DEUTSCHE BUCHT is the first offshore wind farm worldwide to test this foundation under commercial operating conditions.

DC 10000

The Hamburg based engineering company HeavyLift@Sea has provided a basic design for a new heavy cargo deck carrier which is currently being built at a Chinese shipyard. The vessel will be utilised for offshore wind projects in the North and Baltic Seas. The heavy cargo deck carrier (DC 10000) has been designed to transport heavy cargo and large modules as well as components that cannot be lifted by crane due to their weight or structure but are rolled onto the loading deck. Since the ports at which the ship will call include a very small one in Denmark, the HeavyLift@Sea team simulated these conditions at the Danish shipbuilding test facility in Copenhagen and included the result in the design's calculations. The loading deck covers 3,600m2, particularly large in relation to the overall dimensions of the ship, which has a length of 148.50m and a width of 28m.

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has postponed three more public meetings regarding the 800MW Vineyard Wind project due to the ongoing Government shutdown as Congress and President Trump continue to clash over the proposed border wall. The shutdown began on 22nd December 2018 and stems from President Donald Trump’s request for an additional €5bn in funding for the border wall. Meetings concerning the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the wind farm were scheduled for the 15th, 16th and 17th of January and will know be pushed back to a later date. Vineyard Wind LLC continues to encourage the public to submit comments on the DEIR and the Final Environmental Impact Report submitted to the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act Office. Vineyard Wind is a 50-50 joint venture between Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) and Avangrid Renewables and is anticipated to start construction in 2019 with commissioning in 2021.

Four offshore wind farm developers have missed the deadline (2nd January 2019) to secure Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) in Taiwan before the new and less favourable feed-in tariffs (FIT) come in force in 2019. The Changhua County Government has not issued the establishment permits required for the completion of PPA negotiations for six wind farms including Ørsted’s 900MW Changhua 1 and 2a projects. The County Government stated that there was not sufficient time to finish going through all the documents before the deadline. Ørsted stated that this could affect the contracts it has signed with several local suppliers and future decisions on further investment in Taiwan.  The final figure for the 2019 FIT has yet to be confirmed. Swancor is one of the fortunate developers to have a confirmed PPA and signed a 20-year agreement with Taipower last month for the 376MW Formosa II offshore wind farm.

The Danish Energy Complaints Board (Energiklagenævnet) has decided to revoke and reexamine the establishment permits for the 344MW Vesterhav Nord/Syd wind farm, located 4km off the west coast of Denmark. Over 300 complaints were filed against the project in January 2017 following the award of consents to Vattenfall by The Danish Energy Agency (DEA), in December 2016. The Board was tasked with assessing the appeals which concern the distance to shore and layout of the wind farm as well as the formal procedure for the decision making by the Danish authorities. On 20th December the Energy Complaints Board published the decision to revoke and reexamine the part of the establishment permit which relates to the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). The wind farm will only be able to progress to construction following the approval of a revised EIA. Financial Close was expected Q4 2018 and the 41 SG 8.0-167 DD wind turbines were due to come online in 2020; it is unknown what impact.

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy has launched its new giant 10MW offshore wind turbine. The new SG 10.0-193 DD model builds on the SGRE Direct Drive generator technology and features a 193m rotor diameter with 94m long blades. SGRE states that the new turbine offers up to 30% more annual energy production (AEP) than its predecessor, the SG 8.0-167 DD. SGRE claims that the AEP of one SG 10.0-193 DD is sufficient to supply about 10,000 European households with electricity. A prototype is due to be installed in 2019 with commercial market deployment expected in 2022. GE has also stepped up its game and the company’s first 12MW Haliade-X turbine is currently under construction. GRI Renewable Industries is producing the turbine tower at its Seville factory and the prototype will be installed in Rotterdam this summer. The 12MW model stands at 260m high with 107m long blades and 220m rotor diameter. According to GE the Haliade-X model can generate 67GWh annually. The turbine will be ready for installation from 2021.
