From spring 2019, Danish company A2SEA will play a key role in building the world’s largest ever offshore wind farm, Hornsea Project One for DONG Energy. Capacity will be 1.2GW.
A2SEA’s purpose-built offshore installation vessel Sea Installer will be deployed to install a part of the 174 Siemens 7MW turbines.
Jens Frederik Hansen, CEO at A2SEA, said: “It is a great pleasure and with pride that we can inform that A2SEA has signed a contract to in-stall turbines at what will become the world’s largest offshore wind farm, Hornsea Project One.
“In a market of fierce competition, this contract cements our position as a trusted, competent com-pany and I have full faith in our excellent team to deliver yet another project on time, on budget and very importantly, in the safest manner.”
The Hornsea Project One OWF will be located 120km off the Yorkshire Coast, covering approx. 407 square kilometres. When fully commissioned, the 1.2GW offshore wind farm will provide green energy for well over 1 million homes in the UK.
