Innovation completes bucket installation

GeoSea’s offshore installation vessel Innovation has successfully completed the installation of 20 suction bucket jackets at the Borkum Riffgrund 2 wind farm, located offshore Germany.

Borkum Riffgrund 2, owned by Ørsted and Global Infrastructure Partners, will feature 56 Vestas turbines of 8 MW and have a total capacity of 450 MW. GeoSea’s scope in the project involved the transport and installation of 20 suction bucket jackets, each weighing 950 tonnes and measuring 58 m in height.

“The completion of this project further establishes our strong track record in providing innovative solutions for our offshore wind farm customers,” said Glenn Carton, GeoSea project manager Borkum Riffgrund 2. “GeoSea is now one of the few companies with vast expertise and experience in suction bucket jacket installation.”

GeoSea’s Innovation is now being mobilised to Flushing, the Netherlands, before heading to Ørsted’s Hornsea Project One wind farm in the UK, where GeoSea is currently installing 174 foundations.
