Fred. Olsen Windcarrier has been awarded a transport and installation contract for installation of Siemens 7MW turbines at the Hornsea Project One Offshore Wind Farm, developed by DONG Energy Wind Power. Approximately half of the 174 turbines are expected to be installed under this contract.

Hornsea Project One Offshore Wind Farm will become the largest offshore wind farm ever built, and is located approximately 60 nautical miles east of Hull in the North East of England and will generate 1.2GW of power in total.

“This is a very exciting project for us as it is the first large transport and installation project we will have worked on in the UK,” said Head of Commercial and Projects, Even Larsen. “Not only that, but it is our first project working with DONG Energy Wind Power. We are proud to have been chosen for such an important project for DONG Energy Wind Power, and hope it will be the start for a long and strong relationship between us and the leading offshore wind development company in the world.”
