First turbine at sea
Jul 06, 2006
On Sunday June 4, the first wind turbine has been installed at sea. Sea Energy, the ship of A2Sea, installed the tower on the foundation.
The nacelle with two blades was placed on top of the tower. Last the third blade was attached to the nacelle. It all sounds easy, but the job is quite complicated. Over 15 assemblers and mechanics worked for 36 hours to install the first wind turbine. With this first wind turbine the wind farm becomes visible. In the coming months you can watch the installation of the turbines from the shore. As happened the last few days both heavy lift vessels will be working on sea at the same time. The Svanen installs the foundations and the Sea Energy installs the turbines on the foundations. Both vessels transport the components from the harbour to the offshore site accompanied by tugboats.
