Germany-based Trianel Windkraftwerk Borkum GmbH & Co. KG installed first turbine at its 200-MW Borkum II wind project in the German North Sea.
The project will host a total of 32 Senvion SA turbines, of which two more will be installed in the coming days, according to an Aug. 15 news release.
Project developer Trianel Windpark Borkum II said commissioning is on track for the end of 2019. Total investment amounted to €800 million.
Originally scheduled to begin in mid-April, the turbine installation was delayed due to Senvion's self-administration insolvency proceedings in April.
Trianel Windpark Borkum II has multiple owners, including German energy and telecommunications provider EWE AG, with a 37.5% share, and a joint venture of the power utility of the city of Zurich and Swiss asset manager FONTAVIS AG, with a 24.51% stake.
