Cadeler signs contract for installation campaign on Hornsea 2
Cadeler will be sending Pacific Orca to the United Kingdom in early 2021 for performance of a foundation installation campaign after being subcontracted to deliver an installation vessel by DEME.
Pacific Orca will support DEME’s Innovation with the installation of 165 monopile foundations at Ørsted’s Hornsea 2 offshore windfarm. Once foundations are in the water, 8.4MW turbines will be delivered by Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy and installed by DEME vessels. Hornsea 2 is located off the coast of Yorkshire and will provide 1.4GW of offshore wind power upon connection to the grid, meeting the electricity needs of 1.3 million households.
“Cadeler is excited to be working so closely with DEME in 2021. Our companies have delivered projects together in the past, and we have always found the working relationship to be mutually advantageous. We view DEME’s selection of Pacific Orca for assistance on Hornsea 2 as a reaffirmation of the strong connection between our companies”, says CEO, Cadeler, Mikkel Gleerup.
