Cadeler signs turbine foundation agreement with Ørsted for Hornsea 3


Contify Energy News  

 

    Ørsted, the world’s most sustainable energy company, has signed an agreement with Cadeler for the installation of turbine foundations at Hornsea 3 offshore wind farm. The contract contains a further mutual commitment to develop the vessel hire agreement into a transportation & installation contract for the entire foundation scope, widening Cadeler’s involvement in the Hornsea 3 project. Subject to Ørsted taking a Final Investment Decision on Hornsea 3 – the agreement will see Cadeler make first use of its F-Class vessel, which is specifically built to handle the transportation & installation of the new generation of XL foundations and will be the latest addition to its fleet.

    Key Highlights:

    * With a capacity of 2,852 MW, Hornsea 3 will produce enough low-cost, clean, renewable electricity to power 3.2 million UK homes, making a significant contribution to the UK Government’s ambition of having 50 GW offshore wind in operation by 2030 as part of the British Energy Security Strategy.

    * Hornsea 3 will be located 160 km from the Yorkshire coast and when it comes online.

    * Ørsted’s Hornsea zone – comprising Hornsea 1, 2 and 3 – will have a total capacity of in excess of 5 GW.

    * This will be the world’s largest offshore wind zone, producing enough low-cost, clean, renewable electricity to power more than 5 million UK homes.

    Original Press Release:

    Aug. 1 -- Orsted issued the following news release:

    Ørsted, the world’s most sustainable energy company, has signed an agreement with Cadeler for the installation of turbine foundations at Hornsea 3 offshore wind farm.

    The contract contains a further mutual commitment to develop the vessel hire agreement into a transportation & installation contract for the entire foundation scope, widening Cadeler’s involvement in the Hornsea 3 project.



    Subject to Ørsted taking a Final Investment Decision on Hornsea 3 – the agreement will see Cadeler make first use of its F-Class vessel, which is specifically built to handle the transportation & installation of the new generation of XL foundations and will be the latest addition to its fleet.



    With a capacity of 2,852 MW, Hornsea 3 will produce enough low-cost, clean, renewable electricity to power 3.2 million UK homes, making a significant contribution to the UK Government’s ambition of having 50 GW offshore wind in operation by 2030 as part of the British Energy Security Strategy. Offshore installation for the wind farm project is forecast to begin in 2026.



    Hornsea 3 will be located 160 km from the Yorkshire coast and when it comes online. Ørsted’s Hornsea zone – comprising Hornsea 1, 2 and 3 – will have a total capacity of in excess of 5 GW. This will be the world’s largest offshore wind zone, producing enough low-cost, clean, renewable electricity to power more than 5 million UK homes.



    Patrick Harnett, Vice President Programme UK at Ørsted, said: “Hornsea 3 represents another leap forward of the size and scale of offshore wind farms. The construction of such a feat of engineering is only possible through tight collaboration, hard work, and dedication. We work very closely with our partner companies to develop the strong relationships needed – sharing knowledge and expertise throughout. With each project, we build on what we have learned and we are getting better and leaner each time, while still keeping a strong emphasis on quality and safety. We look forward to working alongside Cadeler when offshore construction begins.”



    Cadeler has been actively involved in the building of wind turbines in connection with the Hornsea 2 project, and this third phase of the massive-scale wind farm Hornsea zone will therefore be a natural continuation of the work done by Cadeler in the past.
