Rotterdam, the Netherlands, 10 June 2015 – Van Oord’s offshore transport and installation vessel Aeolus successfully completed the installation of 43 wind turbines on the Dutch Eneco Luchterduinen offshore wind farm.
Aeolus completed the foundations in the autumn of 2014. The installation of the turbines started early April and was completed on 9 June. At the moment 22 wind turbines are operational, the remaining 21 wind turbines are expected to be operational in July 2015.
Pieter van Oord, CEO: ‘Although weather conditions have not always been favourable, Aeolus has done a great job on its first project. The vessel is an excellent example of our innovative strength.’
Aeolus’ next challenge is the construction of the Gemini offshore wind farm 85 kilometers off the northern Dutch coast.
