CADELER VATTENFALL HKZ KLOET 243dd12072022
Hollandse Kust Zuid Offshore Wind Farm
The Netherlands

Cadeler has been in charge of the transportation and installation (T&I) of all 139 Siemens Gamesa 11 MW wind turbines at the Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farm in the Netherlands.

Upon completion in June 2023, the wind farm took the record as the world’s largest single offshore wind farm with a capacity of 1.5 GW. It also took the record as the first ever to be built without subsidies. Today, the wind farm is producing enough renewable energy to power more than 1.5 million Dutch households a year.

When our team of engineers started to plan for this project years ago, it was the first time ever that these giant 11 MW wind turbines were to be installed on a commercial scale. This required skilful engineering work and a good collaboration between engineers from Vattenfall, Siemens Gamesa and Cadeler. The team managed to come up with the best possible solution to successfully carry more components at each load-out, while keeping within the maximum utilization of the vessel and prove the concept for future projects.

If the weather permits, the team onboard Wind Osprey were able to install such an 11MW offshore wind turbine in less than 24 hours.

Wind Osprey was deployed in this project. Load out port was Port of Rotterdam. Clients were Siemens Gamesa and Vattenfall.

WTG Installation
Hollandse Kust Noord Offshore Wind Farm
The Netherlands

Wind Osprey was contracted to transport and install 42 11 MW Siemens Gamesa offshore wind turbines for the Hollandse Kust Noord off the coast of The Netherlands from June 10 to October 20 2023 right after completing the work on Hollandse Kust Zuid. The installation was completed within the agreed timeframe.

If the weather permits, the team onboard Wind Osprey were able to install such an 11 MW offshore wind turbine in less than 24 hours.

Load out port was Eemshaven.

Cadeler Seagreen
Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm
Scotland

Cadeler secured the full installation scope of all 114 Vestas V164-10.0MW turbine generators (WTGs) at the Seagreen offshore wind farm in Scotland. When the wind farm was completed in June 2023, it took the record as Scotland’s largest and the world’s deepest fixed bottom offshore wind farm.

During this project, we installed some of the deepest fixed wind turbines that we have ever installed in the history of Cadeler. On 25 locations the water depth exceeded 55 metres with the deepest installed having a water depth of an impressive 59 metres.

These deep locations have been an area of focus since the early preparation days in 2019. A result of many hours of well-researched location specific engineering, planning, and of course the good collaboration between Cadeler, Vestas, SSE Renewables and TotalEnergies.

Today, the Seagreen offshore wind farm is making an impactful contribution to the green transition in the UK where it generates around 5,000 GWh a year, enough to power more than 1.6 million homes with green and clean energy.

The 1.075MW wind farm is owned by TotalEnergies and SSE Renewables. It is located off the coast of Angus in the North Sea. Wind Orca was deployed for this installation and load out port was Port of Nigg.
