Hornsea Two offshore construction starts

6 October 2020

Ørsted’s Hornsea Two offshore wind farm has seen its first significant infrastructure installed offshore. Six weeks ago, 10 000 tonnes of steel framework for the wind farm’s pin piles, reactor compensation and offshore substation jackets sailed from Batam in Indonesia to the UK.

The first 4800 tonne jacket has now been lifted and installed in to its final position for the site's offshore substation.

Patrick Harnett, Ørsted senior programme director for Hornsea Two said: ”We’re delighted to announce that we’ve now officially commenced our offshore construction for Hornsea Two with the installation of our offshore substation and reactor compensation jackets. Through a remarkable feat of engineering together with our partners, we’ve overcome COVID challenges and are on track for fabricating the world’s largest AC offshore substation, which will be supported by this gigantic steel structure.”
