The vessel first departed from Canada to the project site offshore Virginia on 20 May, carrying the monopiles and transition pieces.
After installing both foundations, Vole au vent returned to Halifax. The jack-up is expected to have one more trip to complete the installation.
The 12 MW CVOW demonstration project, located some 43km off the coast of Virginia Beach, is being developed by Ørsted and the U.S. Dominion Energy.
The two Siemens Gamesa 6 MW turbines are expected to provide the operational, weather, and environmental experience needed for the 2.6 GW development in the adjacent 112,800-hectare lease site, expected to be operational by 2026.
