Sunday 17 May 2020 marked the final turbine installation at Trianel Windpark Borkum II. The last big components were installed on Saturday, and the final bolt and nut early on Sunday morning.

Turbine installation was originally expected to be completed last year. However, bad weather during the autumn and winter months, as well as the insolvency of turbine supplier Senvion massively hampered the construction schedule.

Installation of the 32
Senvion 6.2 M152 offshore wind turbines started in August 2019, using Jan De Nul's jack-up installation vessel Tailevent. Back in February, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier was contracted to install the remaining 11 Senvion 6.2M152 turbines on Trianel Windpark Borkum II. Related company, Global Wind Service, was already on the project delivering technicians, QA and Site Management for the installation and mechanical completion of all 32 turbines. Each turbine stands roughly 105m tall, with a rated power of 6.15 MW.

Trianel Windpark Borkum II covers an area of 33 km2 and is located 45 km off the northern coast of Borkum Island, Germany. It will have an overall capacity of 203 MW when commissioned. Companies involved in the project are EWE AG with a share of 37.5% and a joint venture of the power utility of the city of Zurich with 24.51%. The municipal utilities cooperation Trianel, along with 17 municipal utilities from Germany, holds a share of 37.99%.

TWB II is located in the direct vicinity of the 200 MW
Trianel Windpark Borkum I project, which consists of 40 turbines and has been in operation since summer 2015.
