Olympic intervention iV

Adwen has chartered Olympic Subsea’s vessel Olympic Intervention IV for operations & maintenance at three offshore wind farms in the German part of the North Sea. The DP2 vessel has been fitted with a SafeWay gangway, marking the first commercial operation for this motion compensated offshore access system in the offshore wind sector. Olympic Intervention IV started its charter at the end of September and will be carrying out operations for a period of around four and a half months. The SafeWay access system, developed by the Dutch company Van Aalst, was used for the first time during the maintenance campaign at the Trianel Windpark Borkum (TWB), where 40 turbines needed to be inspected. Following operations at TWB, Olympic Intervention IV was directed to the Wikinger and Alpha Ventus offshore wind farms.

MV Aeolus is certainly busy in getting an upgrade at the Damen Shiprepair yard in Schiedam. Apart from the new 1,600-tonne main crane to be installed later, Damen will install a new accommodation unit providing accommodation for an extra 25 persons, a strengthened main deck raised about 1m above the existing main deck, and sponsons placed for most of the length of each side of the vessel adding an extra 3m to the breadth of the main deck. The new crane housing a frame and boom is being constructed by Huisman Engineering in the neighbouring fabrication facility. Huisman will also install and commission the new 1,600t crane, making it the heaviest lift WTIV in the offshore wind sector.

oleg strashnov

Seaway Heavy Lifting’s vessel Oleg Strashnov is currently at the Merkur offshore wind farm site as the vessel is deployed on installing the jacket foundation for the Merkur offshore substation. The jacket for the offshore substation left Eemshaven to be towed to the construction site in the German part of the North Sea. The joint venture between Engie Fabricom-Tractebel and Iemants was awarded the contract for the offshore substation and associated jacket for the 396MW Merkur offshore wind project. The 1,700-tonne jacket was loaded out from Iemants yard in the Netherlands on 5 September, while Engie Fabricom had been working on the final assembly of the substation at its yard in Belgium at that time.

OFFSHORE windparks

Double win for floating wind

The world’s first commercial floating wind farm has entered into operation. The Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is officially opened the 30MW Hywind project today (18th October) in Aberdeen. The five SWT-6.0-154 turbines are mounted onto floating ballasted steel cylinders which were assembled in Stord, Norway and towed across the North Sea to the Scottish site this summer. The project is being operated by Statoil in partnership with Masdar who will also install Batwind, a 1MWh Lithium battery storage solution for offshore wind energy. Battery storage has the potential to mitigate intermittency and optimise output. Last Friday, France also celebrated as the Floatgen wind turbine is now complete and ready for installation off the coast of Croisic. Both projects aim to demonstrate the feasibility of floating wind turbines and are an important first step for the industry.

horns rev 3 monopile works kicks off

Installation of the 49 monopile foundations is now underway at the 406MW Horns Rev 3 project. GeoSea’s vessel, DP2 Innovation, arrived on site earlier this week loaded with the first monopiles from the Port of Esbjerg. Manufactured by EEW Special Pipe Constructions GmbH, each 50-70m long foundation weighs 420-705 tonnes and will be driven 25-39m into the seabed. The monopiles will support 49 V164-8.0 MW turbines which will be installed from next summer with full commissioning anticipated during 2019. DP2 Innovation has had a busy season; prior to Horns Rev 3 the vessel has been on site at the Rentel offshore wind farm from July until October installing the 42 monopiles and transition pieces. The SWT-7.0-154 turbines and substation are to be delivered next spring for the 309MW project which is eventually due to be connected to the Belgium Modular Offshore Grid in 2019.

Norfolk vangurad

Vattenfall is kicking-off official consultations for the 1.8GW Norfolk Vanguard offshore wind farm. Vattenfall has published a Statement of Community Consultation which sets out how as developer they are consulting stakeholders, statutory bodies and local communities ahead of applying for a Development Consent Order, scheduled to be submitted Summer 2018. A Preliminary Environmental Impact Report is also to be released at the end of the month which will allow issues to be highlighted during the statutory consultation process which starts on 7th November. If consented the project could feature 90-257 turbines with a generating capacity of 7-20MW each. Vattenfall anticipate commercial operational during the mid-2020’s.

Land ahoy at rentel

The 40km export cable for the Rentel offshore wind farm has made landfall in Zeebruges, Belgium. A cable laying barge has taken over installation in the shallow waters 6km from shore and has brought the cable ashore where a mechanical trenching machine on caterpillars and mobile cranes will lay the final stretch of cable. Rentel will be the first wind farm connected to the new high voltage station in Zeebruges but will eventually also be connected via the Belgium Modular Offshore Grid, anticipated 2019. Array cable and foundation installation is also ongoing and the 42 SWT-7.0-154 turbines are to be installed next spring with first power expected by mid-2018. When operational, the 309MW project is expected to meet the demands of 288,000 households annually.

two down, two to go at danish project

Installation of the second foundation at the 28MW Nissum Bredning demonstration project continues as the strong winds subside. The wind farm has received financial backing from the Danish Ministry of Energy to test a variety of cost saving offshore wind solutions. The project will feature Siemens slender tower concept with specially designed jacket foundations and 66kV cabling. Installation of the four jackets was originally scheduled to start in July but was pushed back until mid-September. Strong winds have caused further delays and full commissioning is now expected during December. But project owners Nissum Bredning Vindmøllerlaug and Jysk Energi A/S remain optimistic and hope for a clear weather window as the transition pieces manufactured by Aarsleff in Poland have also arrived in Thyborøn this week.

ideol set to inagurate fully assembled floating turbine

Floatgen project partners have inaugurated the 2MW floating wind turbine, after it was fully assembled at the Saint Nazaire port in France. The Floatgen system consists of a Vestas V80 wind turbine mounted on a square ring-shaped floating foundation, known as the Damping Pool, developed and patented by Ideol and built by Bouygues Travaux Publics. The turbine – first of its kind in France – will be towed and installed off the coast of Le Croisic, in Brittany, at the SEM-REV test site. Floatgen will be installed for an initial period of two years and the electricity generated will be fed into the national power grid throughout the operational period. Once installed at the SEM-REV site, the floater will be operated by Centrale Nantes engineering school.

tender window for 700mw dutch project

The Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs have published details relating to the upcoming tender for the Hollandse Kust Zuid Sites I&II sites. The tender is open for zero subsidy applications which are due to be submitted from the 15th-21st December 2017. A draft document of the criteria and evaluation method was published for review in September, the finalised version will be presented at an information meeting on 1st November in Utrecht. There are six main criteria used to evaluate the bids; the knowledge and experience of parties involved, quality of design, wind farm capacity, social costs, quality of risk analysis and cost efficiency. If no zero-subsidy bids are received then the Ministry will proceed with the tender and offer it to bidders who require subsidy. The 700MW project is expected to be fully commissioned by 2022.

taiwan projects pass eia

The Taiwan Environmental Protection Administration has approved environmental impact assessments (EIA) for Zones of Potential 27 and 28, submitted by both Copen-hagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) and Strait Wind Power Company Limited (Taiwan Power Company). Both projects have had to reduce capacity, area and number of turbines, with an increase in turbine size to minimise the risk to birds and white dolphins. Site selection rules laid out by the Ministry of Economic Affairs state that, if more than two applications are made for one site, the first through EIA process will have priority. Although the Strait EIA was approved in morning and CIP in afternoon, in this case both will go forward as equal, when working for a preparation permit. In total there are 36 Zones of Potential in Taiwan with a possible capacity of 25GW.

jamaican offshore wind takes first steps

Jamaica’s first offshore wind farm has been awarded a grant from the US Trade and Development Agency to support its development. The funding will allow the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ) to carry out a feasibility study for an offshore wind farm in the Caribbean Sea. PCJ has selected Keystone Engineering Inc. (KEI), a U.S firm specialised in the development of offshore projects, to conduct the study. KEI was the foundation design-engineer for the first offshore wind farm in the U.S., the 30MW Block Island project. Jamaica already has a steadily developing onshore wind market, the largest project being the 62.7MW Wigton Windfarm operated by a subsidiary of PCJ. According to PCJ, the Jamaican Government has identified renewable energy development as a ‘major pillar in its strategy for energy security.’
