North Sea Wind Farm Progressing

Work to install a 160 MW wind farm at Horn Rev in Denmark was completed in August by Danish energy company Elsam.

Fredericia, Denmark – October 8, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] The wind farm is located in the North Sea, 14-20 km west of Blaavandshuk on the west coast of Jutland. The work consisted of driving the foundation piles, raising the wind turbines and cabling the 160 MW wind farm. “Elsam is very pleased to have reached this milestone at an earlier stage than scheduled. This is an important proof of the possibility of building large offshore wind farms – even under the difficult conditions prevailing in the North Sea,” said Flemming Thomsen, Manager, Elsam Wind Power Development. The foundation work was completed in early August with the mounting of the final transition piece on the 80 wind turbine foundations. In late August, Vestas completed installing the 80 wind turbines at Horns Rev and cable installer Nexans then installed the final cables, connecting the wind turbines in the farm. Final work to bring the wind farm online is in progress including cable termination, final installations, testing and commissioning. At present, four wind turbines have been commissioned. All 80 wind turbines of the wind farm should be in operation in mid November 2002.
