North sea wind farm construction complete

Construction of a 200MW wind farm has been completed in the North Sea.

The Borkum West II development of 40 turbines was built 45km north of the German island of Borkum by contractor Trianel Windfraftwerk Borkum.

Commissioning is now due to take place into early 2015.

UK-headquartered renewables consultancy SgurrEnergy acted as lender’s technical advisor, monitoring construction on the scheme.

SgurrEnergy project manager Andrew Cole said: “SgurrEnergy has been involved in this landmark project for around five years and it’s fantastic to see it reach this construction milestone and take another successful step towards completion.

“We extend our congratulations to all at TWB and look forward to working together through the final stages of commissioning and into project operation.”
