Manor Renewable Energy (MRE) is to provide temporary power to the
Borssele 1&2 offshore wind farm, during the turbine commissioning phase. The contract, signed with developer Ørsted, was announced today (28th January 2020).

MRE, which was founded in 2013, has delievered temporary power and engineering solutions to several offshore projects. MRE’s Business Director, Toby Mead, noted that Ørsted’s ambitions and MRE’s “aligned”, so that “we understand the requirements and expectations from the project team”.

Ørsted won rights to the
Borssele 1&2 site in July 2016, with an average bid strike price, excluding transmission costs, of EUR 72.70/MWh for the first 15 years of the project's operation. The project will consist of 94 Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SG 8.0-167 DD turbines, with a combined capacity of 752 MW. It is located 23 km off the coast of Zeeland (Westkappele), and is expected to provide power to around 500,000 households once completed. The project should be fully commissioned by the end of the year.

Recently, 4C Offshore reported that Ørsted had cut the ribbon for its new operations and maintenance base in Vlissingen, to support the wind farm.
