6 September 2017 by Sotiris Kanaris

A2SEA has signed an agreement to install 66 transition pieces (TPs) on the 396MW Merkur Offshore Wind Farm for GeoSea.

The Merkur Offshore Wind Farm is located approximately 45km north of the islands of Borkum, Germany. When fully commissioned in 2019, it will provide around 500,000 German households with renewable power.

The Sea Challenger will transport and help install the TPs, with mobilisation for the project starting in the beginning of October in Eesmhaven, Holland. The Sea Challenger can carry six TPs at a time.

“We are very proud to be able to announce this project. It is the first time the Sea Challenger will install TPs. We are confident that the vessel and her experienced crew will perform yet another well-executed project on time, on budget, and safely, to the satisfaction of our customers,” said Michael Glavind, CEO at A2SEA.
