‘Oleg Strashnov’ Finishes His Work at Trianel’s Borkum Wind Farm

The installation work for the internal transformer platform for Trianel’s Borkum wind farm was successfully completed yesterday.

During a two-day mission at the construction site, 45 kilometers off the Borkum’s coast, the heavy lift vessel Oleg Strashnov lifted the 2,400-ton deck onto the substructure (jacket). Then the transformer platform and jacket were welded together.

With the transformer platform, we haven’t just installed the power outlet for the wind farm, but we also created the conditions for the next stage of construction,” said Klaus Horstick, Managing Director of Trianel wind farm Borkum GmbH & Co. KG.In the coming months, we will erect the wind turbines.

The erection of the AREVA M5000 turbines with a capacity of 5 MW should start in May. During the installation of wind turbines, the installation vessel MPI Adventure will be used for half a year.

The offshore wind farm is planned to be connected to the grid by TenneT in the 3rd quarter of 2013. Originally, the commissioning was planned for 2012/2013 year. However, a new completion date is scheduled for the 4th quarter of 2013.
