Van Oord has completed the installation of the 150th foundation at the Gemini Wind Park in a record time of 3.5 months.

On the 1 of July 2015, Van Oord’s newbuild installation vessel Aeolus, together with Swire Blue Oceans Pacific Osprey, started installation and the last foundation was installed on the 17 October, one month earlier than scheduled.

On 1 of February, 2016 both vessels will return to the project, completely modified for the installation of the 150 wind turbines. They will sail from Esbjerg in Denmark, where the wind turbines are produced and stored at Siemens, directly to the Gemini Wind Park.
