Merkur Offshore Windfarm – halfway through installation

GE Renewable Energy has announced the installation of the 33rd GE Haliade 150-6MW wind turbine at the 396MW Merkur Offshore Windfarm in Germany, located approximately 35km north of the island of Borkum, in the North Sea. Recently one of the installed Haliade 150-6MW generated its first power production (on mini-grid mode). Installation of remaining 33 GE Haliade 150-6MW is expected to finish in September 2018, while commissioning activities will continue until end of the year. In the meantime, remaining nacelles, blades and tower pieces will be shipped to Eemshaven logistic hub until mid-summer 2018, where local teams will perform pre-assembly works.
