The topside of the offshore substation at the Albatros wind farm offshore Germany was installed Tuesday evening, developer EnBW said.

The heavy-lift jack-up vessel (HLJV) Pacific Ospray had loaded the topside in Rotterda, and once in the construction area, the HLJV Innovation lifted the topside on the foundation (monopile and transition piece) that had already been installed. 

The Pacific Ospray will be jacked up and remain next to substation until outstanding coating and welding work is completed.

Afterwards, the jack-up vessel Seafox2 will come to commission the offshore substation.
