Global Wind Service (GWS) has been awarded a significant contract for
Windpark Fryslân. The client, Siemense Gamesa Renewable Energy, has contracted GWS for pre-assembly, transport, and offshore installation of the project's 89 turbines. The scope of work includes transport and storage of components, pre-assembly, offshore installation, and the supply of lifting equipment.

“After the joint success from previous pre-assembly projects and based on our close collaboration with Global Wind Service over the years, I am confident that we have chosen the right partner for the pre-assembly and Installation of the 89 turbines on the Fryslân project”,
said Hervé Bouraima, Global Commodity Manager, Siemens Gamesa Offshore Procurement.


Located in the IJsselmeer, near Breezanddijk,
Windpark Fryslân will be the world's largest wind farm to be built in an inland waterway.

Last week, the 89th and last monopile foundation was installed. Turbine pre-assembly works will be carried out at Amsterdam Alaska Harbour and Oude Zeug, where work is scheduled to commence in January 2021.
Installation of the 89 wind turbines will start in the spring of 2021, and the wind farm will be operational in the summer of 2021. The project will feature 89 Siemens Gamesa SWT-DD-130 turbines, each with a 4.3 MW capacity and 180 metres high.

Once the project is built, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy will be responsible for its maintenance and management for 16 years. With a capacity of 382.7 MW,
Windpark Fryslân will provide sufficient energy for approximately 500,000 households.
