Dutch offshore wind turbines installed

Offshore wind farm

All 150 turbines have now been installed at one of the world’s largest wind farms, which will provide 1.5M people with sustainable energy.

Set in the Dutch part of the North Sea, the Gemini Offshore Wind Park will help increase renewable energy to 16% of the Netherlands’ total energy consumption in 2023.

Van Oord and Siemens were responsible for installing the turbines at the 600MW offshore farm.

“The installation of the 150th and last turbine in the wind park is a magnificent achievement,” said Gemini CEO Matthias Haag.

“After the successful installation of the foundations, the offshore high voltage stations and 210km of export cables by Van Oord, also the turbine installation went according to plan.”

As well as being a project shareholder, Van Oord has also been the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for the project.

“Installation of the turbines was seamless,” said Van Oord’s Gemini project director Didi te Gussinklo Ohmann.

“We were very pleased with the collaboration between all partners over the last year.

“We proudly reflect upon successful completion of a large and complex project that is contributing to the development and competitiveness of the offshore industry.”
