In a genuinely significant event for the deepwater offshore wind industry, the Beatrice Offshore Wind Turbine Installation System (BOWTIS) designed and built by EB for Talisman Energy (UK) Limited has been used to install the first 5MW turbine at the Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Demonstrator Project.
This project breaks new ground across the board:
- the first offshore wind turbine to be installed in a single lift from a floating barge
- the first REpower 5MW turbine to be installed offshore
- the first offshore wind turbine to be installed in 45m of water
