Buss Group to handle Trianel Borkum II components

Senvion and Buss Group (Buss) have signed an agreement for turbine handling services for Trianel Windpark Borkum II. Work will be completed from the Orange Blue Terminal in Eemshaven.

The scope covers planning, transport and interim storage on the terminal premises as well as pre-assembly and delivery of the components to the quayside ready for load-out.

The planning phase of the works should be completed before the end of the year stated Buss. From spring 2019, a total of 32 wind turbines - consisting of approximately 75m long type RE74.4 rotor blades, 64 tower segments and 32 nacelles - are to be transported successively to the Orange Blue Terminal.

Around 80,000m2 of the 250,000m2 heavy-duty terminal are to be used for storage, handling and pre-assembly of the components.

"We have just completed the wind farm project Merkur. Now we look forward to our next project Trianel Windpark Borkum II, which, like every one of these major projects, will pose new challenges for us. Even after fourteen successfully completed wind farm projects, it remains an exciting task that we are highly motivated to face",
says Martin Schulz, Managing Director of Buss Offshore Solutions.

Trianel Windpark Borkum II will cover an area of 33km2  in the North Sea and consists of a total of 32 Senvion 6.2 M152 offshore wind turbines, each with an output of 6.33 MW. The wind farm is located approximately 45km north of the island of Borkum and will have an overall capacity of 200MW.

Companies behind the project include EWE AG with a share of 37.5% and a joint venture of the power utility of the city of Zurich with 24.51%. The Public utilities cooperation, Trianel, together with 17 municipal utilities from Germany hold a share of 37.99%.

It is located in the direct vicinity of the 200MW
Trianel Windpark Borkum I project which consists of 40 turbines and has been in operation since summer 2015.
