Installation of the final turbine for Borssele III & IV

26 November 2020 - The last of 77 MHI Vestas V164-9.5 MW turbines has been installed for Borssele III & IV by Van Oord’s offshore installation vessel Aeolus

“Good project execution starts with great preparation and planning; the start date of turbine installation was picked in 2017 and met precisely on the day in May this year. Overcoming many additional challenges in this extraordinary year required even more collaboration between all key parties, and led to a successful completion of the installation phase,” says Roeland Borsboom, Project Director and CEO for Blauwwind. “A big thank you is well deserved.”

The first turbines have been delivering power since August 2020. The final set of turbines will now be commissioned and tested in preparation for full power generation. This 731,5 MW wind farm will then supply enough renewable energy to deliver around 2.3% of Dutch electricity demand every year.
