Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-up installation vessel Brave Tern has mobilised for the Block Island Offshore Wind Farm project in Esbjerg, Denmark. Mobilisation included welding of large steel structures on deck to elevate and support the nacelles for the planned transatlantic voyage.
Brave Tern is now en route to St. Nazaire, France, where the 5 GE Renewable Energy’s Haliade 150-6MW nacelles will be waiting to load onto the vessel. After load-out the vessel will transit across the Atlantic to install the turbines at Block Island Wind Farm. Wind lidar, ZephIR 300, is installed on Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s Brave Tern during the Block Island Wind Farm project to complement the onboard technology with delivery of real-time accurate wind information to the crew. ZephIR Lidar has already provided wind resource assessments for the Deepwater Wind project since 2011.
