FairWind has a won a contract by Bladt Industries to install the electrical scope on 135 Transition Pieces for the Hornsea Two offshore wind farm located in the United Kingdom, which once completed will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world.
Located 89km off the Yorkshire coast in the North Sea, Hornsea Two is owned by Ørsted, the global leaders in offshore wind, and will have a capacity of 1.4GW and provide power to over 1.3 million homes.
The scope of the work performed by FairWind is full electrical installation, including light study design of cable support system, and installing all components including free issued items from the end-client.
The Transition Pieces will be fabricated by Bladt Industries in Aalborg, Denmark.
This project follows and builds on the successful completion of the electrical installation of 59 TP’s for Borssele 1+2 wind farm, FairWind’s largest electrical and high voltage project at the time of its completion in March 2020.
Since launching our Electrical and High Voltage department in 2018, FairWind has been contracted for close to 200 Transition Pieces and has developed a robust catalogue of electrical capabilities to deliver such projects globally.
While building up our electrical and HV business and skillset during these projects, FairWind has simultaneously taken a leading role in expanding the pool of skilled electrical experts in the wind industry. We did this by hiring-in high voltage trainees to gain experience on these projects, as well as upgrading several technicians from the 33KV to 66KV high voltage certification standard.
