The Global Tech I project is now in full deployment with more than 60 Global Wind Service (GWS) personnel on board both Fred. Olsen Windcarrier vessels (The Bold Tern and Brave Tern). This is one of Europe’s premier offshore projects and a significant milestone in the development of the 5MW+ WTG platform which will become the standard in the years to come. Global Tech I is also the first time that both the Bold Tern and Brave Tern have worked alongside each other which represents a massive opportunity for GWS and Fred. Olsen Windcarrier to prove our collective capabilities and expertise.
Transhipment of the components takes place at the offshore terminal ABC Peninsular docks of the logistics provider BLG in Bremerhaven. The ABC Peninsular also acts as an intermediate storage location for the components.
The self-propelled vessels take approximately ten hours to sail from Bremerhaven to the installation site.
Wind farm construction is due for completion over the course of the coming summer and as the 80 turbines are installed they will be brought successively into operation.
