Ørsted's Borssele base starts to take shape

North Sea Port prepare to start construction of a new quay and jetties for Ørsteds construction and maintenance base in Vlissingen which will service the Borssele 1&2 offshore wind farm.
The work has been awarded to BV Aannemingsbedrijf De Klerk from Werkendam and is due to start in early April 2019 with completion by November 2019.

The new quay will have a length of 100m and include two floating jetties with mooring facilities for up to four vessels which will be used to transport personnel and equipment to and from the wind farm.


The quay and jetties are part of the Ørsted construction and maintenance base in the Outer Harbor of Vlissingen in North Sea Port. Cordeel Nederland began building to base in December 2018.

The 752 MW
Borssele 1&2 project is located 23km off the coast of Zeeland and will feature SG 8.0-167 turbines. This morning EEW OSB announced the roll out of the first of 35 transition pieces the company is supplying for the project. Foundation installation is due to start early next year and when commissioned the project is expected to provide power to around 500,000 households once completed.
