Jill



Fred. Olsen Windcarrier's heavy lift vessel Jill has completed her cross-Atlantic journey from the United States to Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The jack-up has been floated off and is now ready for her first offshore wind assignment where she will assist in suction bucket installation tests out of Frederikshavn in Denmark. Jill is equipped with 102m long legs, a rack and pinion hydraulic jacking system, a large cargo deck and in addition to her main crane, good crane coverage by her three auxiliary cranes. She was built to accommodate 132 persons in addition to crew, this will, however, be limited to a total of 80 persons in Europe. Jill is capable of transporting wind turbine components of up to 5MW and can carry major components such as gearboxes, generators, transformers, blades and full drive trains for O&M jobs. The first contracts for main component exchanges will take place shortly after arrival.

seajacks zaratan



The self-propelled jack-up Seajacks Zaratan has arrived in Taichung, Taiwan, where the vessel will transport and install wind turbines on the 120MW Formosa 1 Phase 2 offshore wind farm. Zaratan will install all 20 Siemens Gamesa SWT-6.0-154 turbines on the wind farm in the Taiwan Strait in what is the first renewables contract for Seajacks outside Europe. The turbine components have already started arriving at the Taichung Port. The project is located around six kilometers off the west coast of the Miaoli district with water depths ranging between 15 and 30m. The turbines will be installed on monopile foundations which departed from Germany in early April. Once fully built in the second half of 2019 and fully operational in 2020, the Formosa 1 will have the capacity of 128MW.

CTV



Ørsted has placed an order with WindServe Marine for two purpose-built crew transfer vessels (CTVs) for the U.S. offshore wind market. The first CTV will be built by U.S. Workboats and deployed for Ørsted’s Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project, followed by subsequent service on Northeast projects. WindServe’s affiliate shipyard Senesco Marine will construct the second vessel which will specifically be used for the Revolution Wind project offshore New England. The CTVs will be designed by BMT Group and built specifically for East Coast sea conditions. The first vessel is already being built with delivery expected early next year, while the construction of the second CTV will begin in late 2020. The Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project will comprise two Siemens Gamesa 6MW turbines installed in a federal lease area some 43km off the coast of Virginia Beach.

MERKUR NEARS THE FINISHLINE

Commissioning of the 396MW Merkur offshore wind farm is due to be completed in June. According to Manor Renewable Energy Ltd (MRE), only the last few turbines remain to be commissioned and the project will enter full commercial operations in the coming weeks. MRE is on-site as part of a contract with GE which includes the supply of temporary power, personnel and a multi-purpose vessel. GE supplied 66 Haliade 150-6MW turbines for the wind farm and the major construction work was undertaken by Balance of Plant EPCI Contractors, GeoSea. First power was generated in June 2018 and turbine installation was completed in September using jack-up vessel Seafox 5. Merkur Offshore GmbH is a joint venture between Partners Group (50%), InfraRed Capital Partners (25%), DEME Concessions (12.5%) and Coriolis (12.5%). Once commissioned, the offshore wind farm is expected to generate enough green energy to supply approximately 500,000 households per year.

VINEYARD WIND- COMMission APPROVAL

The Martha’s Vineyard Commission has given its approval for the installation of two subsea cables for the Vineyard Wind offshore wind farm. Vineyard Wind is a 50-50 joint venture between Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) and Avangrid Renewables. The proposed 800MW wind farm is located 24km off Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts. Only a small portion of the projects transmission route, which runs through Edgartown waters, is under the Martha’s Vineyard Commission’s jurisdiction. The commission has been reviewing the project as a Development of Regional Impact (DRI) and the approval is conditional on that Vineyard must return to the commission if it decides to decommission the wind farm, and that the commission reserves the right to require a modification if there are unforeseen environmental impacts. If it progresses as planned, the wind farm is slated to start operations in 2021.

DOGGER BANK TO MAXIMISE TURBINE SIZE

SSE and Equinor have been given the thumbs up to increase the rotor diameter of turbines at the Dogger Bank Creyek Beck A&B offshore wind farms from 215m to 280m. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy recently approved the consent variation acknowledging that there have been advancements in technology that would make the projects more efficient and cost effective and that the change will have no significant environmental effects. Located around 130km off the North East coast, SSE and Equinor aim to submit each 1.2GW project in the upcoming Contracts for Difference auction due to be launched on the 29th May. The budget for this round is £65mn for 6GW of new renewable generation capacity with strike prices for offshore wind projects set at £53-56/MWh for delivery from 2023-2025.

WEST OF DUDDON SANDS PREPS FOr
Blade fix

Ørsted is to start a major blade repair campaign at the 389MW West of Duddon Sands offshore wind farm. The blades on all of the 108 SWT-3.6-120 turbines will be removed, repaired onshore, returned and refitted using a jack up vessel. The marine license to undertake the work, granted Marine Management Organisation on 25th April, is valid until December 2021. The repair campaign is due to start in July 2019 and is expected to last one to two years, with Ziton the most likely contractor to conduct the work. According to Siemens Gamesa, after 5 years of operation, the SWT-3.6-210 turbines experienced leading edge erosion sooner than expected at various European wind farms. A similar campaign is also underway at London array. MPI Adventure has been onsite since July 2018 to complete a replacement and will be completed this summer.

POLAND HOLDS FIRST SUPPLY CHAIN EVENT

Equinor and POLENERGIA S.A. in partnership with the Polish Offshore Wind Energy Society recently hosted a Supplier Day for the Bałtyk II & Bałtyk III offshore wind farms. The event was attended by almost 100 participants and 50 companies from the Polish and European offshore wind industry. Offshore wind has been slow to take off in Poland, with projects being continually and a lack of clear policy. However, last November the Government announced ambitions to develop 8GW by 2035 and European heavyweights are showing increasing interest in the polish potential. In May 2018, Equinor signed agreements to acquire a 50% interest in Bałtyk II and III. The two projects have connection agreements for 1.2GW with operations due to start from 2025.

BSH INVESTIGATES NEW OFFSHORE WIND AREAS

The German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) have published a tender for environmental surveys within proposed offshore wind areas in the North Sea. The study program includes investigations of the epifauna and fish fauna within the N-3.5, N-3.6, and N-3.7 wind energy areas over three campaigns during Autumn 2019, Spring 2020 and Autumn 2020. The findings are to be summarised in six reports which will be used to carry out a strategic environmental assessment of the suitability of the areas for development. The results will be made available to parties wishing to bid in offshore wind auctions. According to the most recent version of the Area Development Plan (FEP) published by the BSH in April 2019, the area N-3.7 will be tendered in 2021 for commissioning by 2026 with a capacity of 225MW. The N-3.5 and N-3.6 areas will be tendered in 2023 for commissioning in 2028 with a combined capacity of 900MW. The final draft of the FEP is due to be published by 30th June 2019 and will spatially and temporally outline the tenders for offshore wind development over the next decade.
