The current increase in offshore windfarms is not a big surprise to us. Vageri was involved in the construction of the transformer platform for the Horns Rev. 1 offshore windfarm (160MW) for the Danish company Elsam. the very first transformer platform on the North Sea. After this another transformer platform, for the Riffgat platform (113MW) of EWE was since installed near Borkum in the German sector of the North Sea.

Vageri also installed several so called “Renewables” on board of platforms (Shell Cutter, Nam K18, Newfield Grove, Cirrus M16, NAM L13). These renewable skids consist of one or more smaller scale wind turbines often combined with solar panels that cater for the energy needs of small satellite platforms.
