The DanTysk offshore wind farm was being built by Vattenfall and Stadtwerke München and is located west of the island of Sylt, on the German-Danish border. With 80 wind turbines in total, DanTysk provides up to 400,000 homes with green energy.
Although cable activities in the German North Sea started in July 2013, it wasn’t until February 2014 that Boskalis was called in to complete termination work on the 35 cables already installed. Despite the extremely short preparation time, it proved possible to commence work within 20 days with the Boskalis Offshore DP3 vessel, Protea. At the same time, the Stemat 87 set sail to Velsen and Tonsberg to load the cable. She continued her journey to Esbjerg, where was loaded onto the installation vessel, Olympic Taurus. The installation and termination work for the remaining 53 cables was resumed in April 2014.
