DEME Offshore has been awarded a major contract for transport and installation work on Ørsted’s Hornsea Two wind farm situated 90km offshore from the East coast of England.

This vessel will have a Liebherr HLC 295000 crane with 5,000t lifting capacity. The turbine installation work will be carried out by their installation vessels Sea Challenger and Sea Installer.
The installation work, estimated value > €200 million, is planned to be completed by the end of 2022.
