The units have been stored at the port during assembly. Now, they are installed at the Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm in the North Sea to ensure that the electrical power is distributed.

The installation vessel "SEA INSTALLER" was ready at quayside to receive the heavy units.

"Before we commenced the operation, we went through the safety procedures. We always do that to ensure a smooth and safe operation. Each of the units weighed 185 tons so we used the vessels own crane to lift the heavy elements. After a few hours of work, the ship set its course to Horns Rev", says Mikkel Puggaard, who is Project Manager for Blue Water.
