Heerema’s SSCV Sleipnir has completed two jacket foundations installation for Ørsted’s Hornsea 2 wind farm.
The work included the transportation and installation of two jackets that will provide the foundation for the Hornsea 2 wind farm’s RCS and OSS platforms.
Ørsted’s Hornsea 2 wind farm is located approximately 89 km off the Yorkshire coast in the North Sea, and the project will consist of 165 turbines with a combined total capacity of 1.4 GW.
The installation completes around two years of a close partnership between Ørsted, its fabricator SMOE in Batam, and the transportation subcontractor Biglift.
Heerema will be back to complete the Hornsea 2 scope in 2021.
Sleipnir is the world’s most sustainable SSCV, and during the project, the vessel performed the full installation operations while running on emission-reducing LNG fuel. Using LNG, Sleipnir reduces CO2 emissions by 25%, reduces NOx emissions by 92%, reduces SOx emissions by 99%, and Particulate Matters by around 99% compared to traditional Marine Gas Oil crane vessels.
