Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-up Brave Tern has arrived in Esbjerg, Denmark, and is loading the first set of wind turbine components to be installed on Vattenfall’s Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm.
The 406.7MW wind farm is located in the Danish North Sea and comprises 49 MHI Vestas 8.3MW wind turbines installed on monopile foundations. The first transition pieces are expected to be installed mid-July.
Brave Tern recently underwent a crane boom extension at Damen Shipyard in Amsterdam which has enabled the vessel to handle the largest turbines in the market, such as the MHI Vestas V164 model.
Vattenfall expects to commission the Horns Rev 3 wind farm in 2020.
