GRS arranged Double fixture for wem newbuilds

Wind Energy Marine (WEM) announced that the first two vessels of their fleet, the WEM 1 & 2, have now left Vietnam and are on passage to Rotterdam. WEM say that it is delighted with the build that Piriou Vietnam has completed and that WEM 1 & 2 performed well, exceeding all expectations during sea trials. The vessels share both the same length, 27.5m, and also the same crew capacity of 24. The vessels are expected to arrive later this month. After delivery to Rotterdam, both vessels are expected to begin operations in Northern Germany, where Global Renewables Shipbrokers already arranged a double fixture to her first charterers out of the offshore wind industry.

Zaratan



Seajacks has won a contract from Siemens Gamesa (SG) to install the 6MW turbines at phase 2 of the 120MW Formosa 1 offshore wind farm in Taiwan. This award represents the first renewables project outside of Europe for the Great Yarmouth based company. The 10,000 tonne jack up vessel Zaratan is lined up to install the 20 SWT-6.0-154 wind turbines in water depths of 30m up to 6km off the coast of Miaoli County from Q2 2019. According to SG the entrance of Seajacks into the Taiwan market relieves one of the bottlenecks for utility scale offshore wind in the region. SG also expect more to follow, now that the Taiwanese pipeline until 2024 is clear, creating a healthy and sustainable market. The installation contract is subject to a final investment decision and financial close, both of which are expected later this year. Phase 1 of Formosa featured two 4MW demonstration turbines installed in 2016.

jack-up for china railway



China Railway Construction Corporation (CRCC) has placed an order with COSCO Shipping Heavy Industry for a jack-up vessel with a lifting capacity of 1,300 tonnes that will be deployed on the construction of offshore wind farms. China Railway’s jack-up, featuring a DP2 dynamic positioning system, has a total length of 105 meters and measures 42 meters in width, and is capable of working in water depths of up to 50 meters. COSCO will build the vessel at its shipyard in Qidong, where the company has already built several offshore wind installation vessels. Among the latest work that the COSCO Group won in the offshore wind sector is building DEME’s Orion, a next-generation offshore installation vessel with a 5,000-tonne crane that will be operated by DEME’s daughter company GeoSea. The keel-laying ceremony for the vessel took place in March 2018 and the vessel is set to be delivered in 2019.

hornsea three begins consent process

Ørsted has submitted the planning application for its 2.4GW Hornsea Project Three offshore wind farm. The application was received on 14th May and the Planning Inspectorate has until the 11th June to decide whether to accept the application and begin the next stage of the process. The project is set to feature 300 turbines 120km off the east coast of England. Ørsted acquired the Hornsea Zone from SMart Wind in 2015, and is currently developing the 1.2GW Hornsea Project One which is under construction and the 1.386GW Hornsea Project Two which was successful in the latest Contract for Difference (CfD) round at 57.50 £/MWh. According to a report published this week by the UK’s National Audit Office rule changes for the 2017 CfD auction will increase consumer bills by £1.5bn over 15 years. A 1.5GW capacity cap was introduced to the 2017 auction which according to the report has resulted in smaller but more expensive per unit projects awarded a CfD.

Eowdc array cabling gets underway

Array cable installation has kicked off at the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC). The first JDR-manufactured 66kV array cable was installed last week with the second due to be laid this week by the Ndeavour. The transition from 33kV to 66kV allows for greater power to be transported along the same cross-sectional area of cable and so reduces the number of cables and accessories required. As Scotland’s largest offshore wind demo facility the EOWDC will also test SPT’s suction bucket foundations which support 9 V164-8.4MW turbines and 2 V164-8.8MW turbines. According to Vattenfall, as of Friday 4th May 3 turbines and 7 foundations have been installed. The heavy lift vessel Aegir has arrived to assist Asian Hercules III and accelerate the foundation installation process. Full commissioning and handover of the 93.2MW project is expected by the end of July 2018. MHI Vestas will service the turbines for the next 20 years.

final tests for telescopic turbine 

The ELICAN consortium (Esteyco, Adwen, ALE Heavylift and DEWI) is preparing their innovative self-installing wind turbine prototype for offshore installation. The design uses a gravity based foundation, a telescopic tower and an AD 5-132 turbine. Each complete unit can be assembled onshore, towed to site and installed without heavy-lift vessels. According to Esteyco, expected cost reduction capabilities exceed 35% when compared to Jackets or XXL Monopiles in deep (>35m) water. The structure arrived at the Port of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria on 10th April where the turbine rotor and the blades have since been installed and are now undergoing final tests. ALE stated that final offshore installation is expected to take place in May 2018 which will require ballasting of the foundation by a low-cost reusable Auxiliary Floating System, lifting the tower into its final position and connection to the grid. Energy production is expected by H2-2018.

Last lift completed at china´s largest project

The last turbine for China’s largest offshore wind farm, the Binhai North H2 project was successfully installed on 3rd May. The 400MW project features 100 SWT-4.0-130 turbines located 22km off the coast of the Jiangsu Province. Turbine installation was completed in 347 days with first power achieved this April. 31 turbines are connected to the grid so far and Shanghai Electric will provide maintenance services following commissioning. During construction a major incident occurred in July 2017 when the offshore substation caught fire after lightning caused deflagration of a 35kV cable. Huadian Heavy Industry has led construction and Ramboll provided the project design. The area has very soft soil-conditions and is prone to earthquakes which put unique demands on the project design and construction. Owned by State Power Investment Corporation (SPIC) the project is a continuation of the 100MW Binhai North H1 wind farm.

BIDDERS CELEBRATE TAIWAN RESULTS

The Taiwanese government has awarded grid connection rights for 11 offshore wind farms totalling 3.836GW, 336MW more than expected. 738MW of the allocated capacity will be operational by 2021 and 3.098GW from 2021-2025. European winners were particularly successful; Ørsted was awarded the right to connect 900MW in the Changhua region, wpd secured 650MW in Yunlin and 350MW in Guanyin and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners was awarded a total of 900 MW (300MW with partners). Other successful parties include Taipower, Swancor, China Steel and Northland Power. The winning projects will be entitled to a feed-in tariff (FIT) set by government. The current FIT is €164/KWh. The developers still have to secure an FIT by signing a power purchase agreement with Taipower and obtain establishment permits before achieving financial close. A further 2GW will be auctioned in June to complete Taiwan’s 5.5GW target by 2025.
