Bourbon Subsea Services has wrapped up the installation of the first wind turbine at Spanish construction group Cobra Wind's Kincardine site in Scotland, located off the coast of Aberdeen.
Bourbon Subsea Services’ experience in floating wind turbine installation enabled them to swiftly and efficiently execute the engineering phase of this turnkey project, initiated in May 2018.
The delivery of the operational scopes, including towing the floater to Dundee, pre-laying the 4-leg mooring system and installing the fully assembled wind turbine on site, was optimized by taking advantage of the local supply chain.
BOURBON project management team worked in close collaboration with the main contractor, Cobra Wind, the designer of the semi-submersible floating foundations, Principle Power, as well as the mooring system provider, Vryhof.
Bourbon Subsea Services CEO Patrick Belenfant said: “Delivered on time, this safe and efficient installation strengthens BOURBON’s track record which dates back to 2011. It confirms our leadership position in the floating offshore wind farm installation market.
“We are delighted to have been selected for this pioneering project and to have deployed our experienced team to support Cobra Wind in reaching a key milestone of the 50 MW Kincardine Offshore Wind farm development.”
