September 8 - A2SEA's vessel Sea Installer has installed the first turbine - an 8 MW MHI Vestas model - at Dong Energy's Burbo Bank Extension offshore wind farm in the UK.

Over the next few months, Sea Installer will install the remaining 31 turbines at the farm. This is the first time one of MHI Vestas' new 8 MW turbines has been installed offshore.

Jan Riisgaard, master on board Sea Installer, commented on the lifting first: "We used [MHI Vestas'] new patented lifting tool and our newly extended boom. Our experienced crew did a great job in both handling the new equipment and the new components."
