Seaway Ventus installs its first wind turbine generators

New build installation vessel Seaway Ventus successfully installed its first Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs).

The first turbine was completed on Tuesday afternoon on Ørsted’s Gode Wind 3 project, in cooperation with the WTG manufacturer Siemens Gamesa who provides installation crew and equipment onboard.

Situated 32 kilometres from the coast in the German North Sea, the turbine stands tall in 30 meters water depth, with the hub height measuring 126 meters and the rotor blades spanning 97 meters each.

Camilla V.P. Klejs, turbine installation delivery manager for Seaway7 said: “The delivery of the fully mobilised vessel to our client, and the installation of the first wind turbines is the result of more than three and a half years of careful consideration and design optimisations from a very dedicated team in the newbuild phase, as well as more than two years of planning from our project team.”

The Seaway Ventus will continue installing turbines on the Gode Wind 3 project before transitioning to Borkum Riffgrund 3, which Orsted is building concurrently. Contracted for a fixed period, Seaway Ventus is working alongside Cadeler’s newly upgraded vessel Wind Osprey to install the 106 Siemens Gamesa’s SG 11.0-200 DD wind turbines.
