CSBC no. 15

Taiwan's CSBC Corp has launched the CSBC No. 15, the first locally-built barge for offshore wind. On its maiden voyage, the barge carried 15 large construction sections from Keelung to Kaohsiung. The barge, which meets international sailing requirements, was fully brought forward by CSBC, from the vessel design and investment to construction itself. CBSC says the barge is suitable for operations offshore Taiwan all year round, and is equipped with ballasting system to meet the requirement of Kaohsiung, Keelung, Taichung and Taipei ports. The 140-metre vessel is 41 metres wide and has a load capacity of up to 23,000 tonnes, with a large deck space capable of loading extra large and heavy cargo which can be loaded by stern in, side in, and lift. The barge can carry a complete offshore substation in one run, with a 3,500-tonne foundation and a 3,400-tonne topside, and four 300-tonne pin piles on board. When it comes to jacket foundations, the barge is capable of transporting three 30mx30m jackets.

Pacific orca

Siemens Gamesa and Swire Blue Ocean have signed a long-term agreement for offshore service operations. As part of the new agreement, Siemens Gamesa is chartering the wind farm installation vessel (WFIV) Pacific Orca from June 2019 to February 2021 "to more efficiently service the rising of offshore projects across North Europe''. She can service all the types of wind turbines installed so far without any need for vessel modification, thereby reducing the mobilization time between different wind turbine types significantly and further lowering the levelised cost of energy of offshore wind power. Siemens Gamesa and Swire Blue Ocean have previously collaborated on a number of offshore wind turbine installation projects such as the 336MW Galloper, the 288MW DanTysk, and most recently, the 588MW Beatrice, where Pacific Orca was tasked with installing the 84 Siemens Gamesa 7MW turbines, some of them sited in record depths.

CWind ctv

CWind Taiwan has secured two crew transfer vessel (CTV) charters for the Formosa 1 Phase 2 offshore wind farm in Taiwan. Cwind Taiwan secured a 90-day extension with Formosa Offshore Wind for the Taiwan-flagged Ocean Surveyor 3 in support of the project's ongoing phase 1 maintenance requirements. The second contract was secured with Jan De Nul for the 27m long CWind Phantom, which began supporting the construction of the wind farm in June. CWind had shipped CWind Phantom from Europe and reflagged it to a Taiwanese flag as a commitment toward industry localization. Formosa 1 Phase 2 has recently entered the construction phase and will add 20 Siemens Gamesa 6MW turbines to the already operational first two-turbine phase. The 128MW project, being developed in a joint venture of Ørsted, JERA, Macquarie Capital and Swancor, will be Taiwan's first commercial-scale offshore wind farm.

Turbine installation at the 200MW Trianel Windpark Borkum II (TWB) is due to start in in two weeks. The first 15 6.2M152 turbines had been delivered to Eemshaven with installation originally due to start in mid-April however, the project has been after Senvion filed for “self-administration proceedings” in April to safeguard its ongoing transformation programme designed to stabilise the company and eliminate inefficiencies following a loss of revenue in 2018. In light of recent events, TWB and Senvion have adjusted the supply contract to ensure the delivery of the remaining 17 turbines by Autumn 2019. Consequently, the vessel contracts have also been reshuffled with Taillevent due to replace Vol au Vent. The vessel will head to Emshaven in the coming days. With full commissioning anticipated later this year, TWB is expected to generate 800GWh/year for the next 25 years.

tennet hungry for feed experts

TenneT has launched a tender for the provision of a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) study for the Ijmuiden Ver offshore platforms. The scope focusses on establishing a basic design and tender package for the realisation of two identical 2GW offshore platforms including the platform structure and auxiliary equipment packages. TenneT will tender for the main manufacture and installation contracts in 2020 via an EPCI or split contracting strategy. The platforms will be used to export power from the 4GW Ijmuiden Ver wind energy area which is due to be commissioned from 2027-2030. The project will be the first HVDC offshore wind transmission system in the Netherlands and the first time that a 2GW platform with 525kV cabling will be used to connect offshore wind farms. TenneT has gained experience from developing the HVDC offshore wind grid in Germany.

Jan de Nul’s jack up vessel Vol au Vent has arrived at Oostende, Belgium to undergo mobilisation to install foundations at the 219MW Northwester 2 offshore wind farm. The project will feature 23 V164-9.5 MW turbines sitting atop monopile foundations each weighing up to 1000 tonnes. Jan de Nul has been contracted for the fabrication and installation of foundations and for wind turbine installation and subcontracted Bladt for the manufacture of the foundations and transition pieces. The project is due to be operational in H1 2020, and will generate 818,60 GWh of electricity annually, enough to cover the energy consumption of 220.000 households. Jan de Nul’s sister vessel Taillevent is also preparing to start turbine installation at the Trianel Windpark Borkum II offshore wind farm located 40km North of the Island of Borkum, in the German North Sea. Full commissioning is expected by the end of 2019.

Avangrid Renewables has kicked off high resolution geophysical surveys within its Kitty Hawk Offshore Wind Lease Area. The surveys will help characterize the seabed/sub-surface conditions via means of multibeam bathymetry, magnetic measurements, side scan sonar imaging, seabed stratigraphy, benthic sediment sampling and video imaging. TerraSond’s offshore survey vessel M/V Gerry Bordelon and nearshore Survey Vessel Theory will be working within the proposed wind farm array area and along the Cable Corridor from Sandbridge, VA to east of Corolla, NC from 25th June until 15th October 2019 on a 24/7 basis. Located 44km off the coast of North Carolina, the 495km2 Kitty Hawk lease area has a potential capacity of up to 2.5GW. The area is in the early stages of development and further offshore seabed surveys are planned for 2020 to continue to help characterise the area and inform the design. Aerial surveys by APEM are also underway, using powerful digital imaging systems mounted on twin-engine survey aircraft at an altitude of 1,300ft. Avangrid has stated that the first windfarm within the lease area could be operational as soon as 2025.

G-tec gets into gar for german studies

G-tec, on behalf of Ørsted, has commenced geotechnical surveys at the Gode Wind 3&4 site. The vessel Omalius arrived on-site in late June to undertake a detailed geotechnical site investigation at all turbine locations, including in-situ tests and sampling, and subsequent onshore laboratory testing. Ørsted selected G-tec to provide geotechnical engineering services for Gode Wind 3&4 and German Offshore Wind Cluster 1 projects earlier this year and, according to G-tec, the vessel will head straight to the cluster 1 projects after completing work at Gode Wind 3&4. Ørsted secured the rights to Gode Wind 3&4 in the first and second German auctions in 2017 and 2018 with a combined capacity of 241.75MW at a weighted average price of 81 EUR/MWh. The German Offshore Wind Cluster 1, totalling 900MW, constitutes the Borkum Riffgrund West 1, Borkum Riffgrund West 2 and OWP West projects which were also successful in the first two auction rounds with zero subsidy bids from Ørsted. Across these projects Ørsted will build a total of 1,141.75MW of new offshore wind capacity by 2024/2025, subject to financial close.

15 uxos off

Jan de Nul has enlisted the Seagreen No. 15 vessel to undertake a Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) survey at the 110MW Changhua Demonstration offshore wind farm. Located off the coast of Fangyuan in Changhua County, the project is being developed by Taipower with a consortium of Jan de Nul and Hitachi acting as the Balance of Plant contractor. Seagreen No. 15 will start the UXO survey between 23rd July and 18th August. The vessel was previously on-site in June to install current and wave measuring instruments in the vicinity of the array. The area is prone to extreme weather so the turbines and foundations have been designed to withstand cyclonic waves and winds, and earthquakes. Offshore installation is scheduled for 2020 with commissioning of the 21 5.2MW turbines is expected by the end of the year.
