Ørsted opens new O&M base in Vlissingen


Ørsted officially opened its new operation & maintenance (O&M) base in Vlissingen on 21 January. The new base, the first in the Netherlands for Ørsted, will serve the developer’s Borssele 1+2 offshore wind farm during construction and operation. The 752 MW wind farm, which is currently being constructed some 23 km off the coast at Westkapelle, is planned to be operational by the end of this year.

The event was co-hosted by Energy Port Zeeland and attended by around 200 invitees. The official opening ceremony was performed by Jo-Annes de Bat, representative of the province of Zeeland, John de Jonge, alderman of Vlissingen, CEO Daan Schalck of North Sea Port, Erik de Bruyn, director at Cordeel Nederland and Steven Engels, director at Ørsted Nederland.

The O&M base, comprising an office, warehouse and mooring space for four crew transfer vessels (CTVs), is built by Cordeel. The building, with a total floor space of 2,100 m², was sustainably build; it generates more electricity than it consumes. The surplus production is feed into the grid.
