From Race Bank to Borkum Riffgrund 2
Offshore marine operator Attollo Offshore recently mobilised a jackup accommodation unit to one of the world’s most innovative renewable energy projects – Ørsted’s Borkum Riffgrund 2.
The contract follows on from Attollo’s recent success in the Southern North Sea’s Race Bank windfarm project.
Ørsted’s Borkum Riffgrund 2 offshore wind farm comprises the largest wind turbines in the German North Sea and is expected to produce sufficient electricity to power nearly half a million homes per annum.
Attollo’s workscope will see the Aberdeen-based company - renowned for its smarter operations of offshore assets - provide accommodation and construction support for the hookup and commissioning of the 450MW high voltage substation.
Ben Moore, managing director at Attollo Offshore said: ““Attollo is delighted to be a part of this ground-breaking project, after our success at Race Bank.
“In comparison to the 4MW turbines used within Borkum Riffgrund 1, the Borkum Riffgrund 2’s 8MW turbines are the ultimate demonstration of the innovation and growing ambitions of Ørsted and the global offshore wind industry for a green energy future.”
