GeoSea’s owned jumbo jack up platform Goliath returned back to base port after installing 120 tubular piles for the offshore wind farm Borkum (formely known as Borkum West II). Once completed, the turbines will generate a total output of 200MW.

The wind farm will deliver its first electricity to the German grid by the end of 2012. GeoSea’s pre-piling methodology was further developed for the project specific requirements of the OWF Borkum. This technology has enabled GeoSea not only to install the tubular piles within tight installation tolerances but also measure and thereby prove the same using a metrology system. This metrology system enabled GeoSea to execute quality control without any diving or ROV operations. The completion of pre-piling works has paved the way for the installation of tripod foundation structures and subsequent grouting works which are planned to take place from May 2012 onwards. Following the completion of the pre-piling scope GeoSea will continue to provide logistics and installation services to Trianel on wind farm Borkum which includes grouting works, wind turbine component logistics and wind turbine installation of 5 MW Areva wind turbines.
