The first monopile for the 332 MW Nordsee One offshore wind project was successfully installed ahead of schedule on December 15, 2015. Installation will continue through the remainder of 2015 and into 2016.

The Nordsee One offshore wind farm, located in German territorial waters in the North Sea, will consist of 54 Senvion turbines and is owned by Northland Power Inc. (85 %) and RWE Innogy GmbH (15 %). Nordsee One has contracted installation of the monopiles from GeoSea. The monopiles were produced by Ambau. They are being installed in water depths ranging between 25 and 29 m.

“Today’s accomplishment is very exciting for everyone involved,” said Pierre Lestienne, Managing Director of the project. “Achieving this milestone reflects months of effort and progress, and was a result of the hard work and cooperation of our team and project partners.” John Brace, CEO of Northland, adds: “Thanks to the skill and effort of our project team, we reached this important milestone ahead of time and on budget.”
