December 15 - A2SEA's vessel Sea Installer has completed the installation of 32 Vestas 8 MW turbines at Dong Energy's Burbo Bank Extension off the coast of the UK in the Irish Sea.
"This is the first time the 8 MW turbines have been installed offshore, so it is an exciting time for the entire industry," said Claus Bøjle Møller, project director at Dong Energy.
The Burbo Bank farm has a total capacity of 258 MW and is located 7 km off the coast of Liverpool Bay. It is expected to be fully commissioned in the first quarter of 2017.
Sea Installer's next project is turbine installation on the 580 MW Race Bank wind farm in the UK for Dong Energy. Installation is scheduled to start in early May 2017.
