The combined efforts and expertise of Alstom, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier and Global Wind Service (GWS) have resulted in the successful installation of Alstom’s first offshore wind turbine.

The final 73.5m blade of the Haliade 150 6MW turbine was lifted from the deck of the Bold Tern at 23:30 on the 15th November. By 06:15 the following morning all 70 nuts were in place and tensioned. All works are scheduled to be completed by 16:00.

This project is an important landmark in the development of the next generation of offshore wind turbines and further testament to the capabilities of the Fred. Olsen related companies.

Congratulations to Alstom on the installation of their first offshore wind turbine.
