Brave Tern reaches halfway mark on Block Island

Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s installation vessel Brave Tern has completed more than half of the installation at the Block Island Wind Farm.

"Installation is progressing well and on schedule."

Three of the five GE Renewable Energy Haliade 150-6MW turbines have been successfully installed.

“The first turbine on this landmark project was installed on 4th August. Installation is progressing well and on schedule,” Fred. Olsen Windcarrier project manager Eskil Røset said.

This is the first offshore wind farm to be installed in US waters and the first project Fred. Olsen Windcarrier has worked on outside of Europe.
