Heerema deployed its rotor nacelle assembly (RNA) method to install the turbines – a method that is suitable for installing wind turbine generators with floating installation vessels.

“The floating installation of Arcadis Ost 1 has demonstrated Heerema’s ability to make a real change in the offshore wind market. We continue to be committed to introducing new methodologies that can solve industry challenges,” said Ramon de Haas, chief technology officer.
