Gode farm comes together

May 20 - A2SEA's vessel Sea Challenger has completed the installation of 97 Siemens 6 MW turbines at Dong Energy's Gode Wind 2+1 offshore wind farm in the German section of the North Sea.

"The turbine installation has progressed seamlessly and as planned throughout the winter," said A2SEA ceo Jens Frederik Hansen.

"We experienced some rough and challenging weather during January and February but thanks to the entire project team including our experienced crew both offshore and onshore and our partners on the project, Siemens Wind Power and client Dong Energy, we managed to deliver safely, on time and on budget."

Sea Challenger's next project involves turbine installation on the 402 MW Dudgeon offshore wind farm in the UK for Statoil, Masdar and Statkraft. The vessel will act as accommodation for the project from September, until turbine installation begins in 2017.

The Gode Wind 2+1 farm has a capacity of 582 MW and is expected to provide green energy to around 600,000 German households when fully commissioned.
