Orsted and Glennmont Partners have initiated the installation process at the Borkum Riffgrund 3 offshore wind farm in Germany, boasting a capacity of 913MW.
Glennmont secured a 50% stake from Orsted in early 2022, and the wind farm is being constructed 70km off the North Sea coast.
Expected to be fully operational in 2025, Borkum Riffgrund 3 will become Germany’s largest wind farm in terms of export capacity.
During the construction phase, the Jan De Nul Group will place 83 monopile foundations, each up to 100m long and weighing up to 1500 tonnes.
These foundations will support advanced SG 11.0-200 DD offshore wind turbines, scheduled for installation in the following year.
Boasting 11MW capacities and 200m rotor diameters, these turbines will rank among the largest in the German North Sea.
CEO and Managing Partner at Glennmont Partners, Joost Bergsma, said “It is fantastic to see the construction of Borkum Riffgrund 3 commence, and Glennmont looks forward to its planned commissioning in 2025.”
“The Borkum Riffgrund 3 offshore wind farm is a landmark development both for Glennmont and for North Sea renewables more widely. It marks an attractive proposition for investors, providing over 900MW of reliable, clean, low cost energy, and will be a significant step in meeting Europe’s decarbonisation and energy security ambitions.”
“The continued strong progress of Borkum Riffgrund 3 is a testament to the success of our partnership with Orsted, and we look forward to working together with the Orsted team as we drive forward on this project.”
