UK - Vattenfall installs final wind turbines at its Ormonde offshore wind farm

The 150 MW wind energy plant consists of 30 Repower 5 MW wind turbines

The 150 MW wind farm consists of 30 Repower 5 MW wind turbines. The final generator was installed at 3am on 1 August by A2Sea vessel SeaJack. According to Repower offshore head Frank Zimmermann: "We were able to complete the wind power installation around three weeks ahead of the schedule."

Installation was completed four months after the first turbine was erected. Vattenfall said it now looks forward to generating electricity from the wind farm for the first time later this summer.

Vattenfall head of UK offshore wind farm development Ole Bigum Nielsen said: “Vattenfall’s Ormonde offshore wind farm is the first commercial and largest deployment of Scotland’s Burntisland Fabrications’ steel lattice ‘quadruped’ foundation and Repower’s 5MW turbine, the largest commercially available offshore wind turbine in the world.” Ormonde’s first wind turbine was lifted onto the foundation and installed on 23 March this year.
