On 20.10.2018, the last turbine at the Arkona Offshore Wind Farm was installed. In total, 60 6.45MW Siemens Gamesa turbines were installed by installation vessel ‘Sea Challenger’. The Wind Farm is owned by E.ON and Equinor and is situated in the Baltic Sea between the islands Rügen and Bornholm.
“I am very happy to announce that ‘Sea Challenger’ has installed the final turbine at the Arkona Offshore Wind Farm. We would like to send a special thanks and congratulations to the entire team behind the operation for a smooth project execution as well as an outstanding safety performance. This includes both the crew on board the vessels, the project team and of course our good colleagues and collaborators at E.ON and Equinor,” says Michael Glavind, CEO at A2Sea.
Also the Senior Project Manager from A2Sea, Steen Drue is satisfied. “I am very proud of the team work on this project, and the excellent performance by the vessel and crew, our local site team, and the team in our head office. 60 turbines installed in less than 4 months speaks for itself. And even more important, it was all conducted in a safe manner.”
