RWE Innogy has formally named one of its two wind turbine installation vessels, Victoria Mathias, which will build the Nordsee Ost offshore windfarm some 30km north of the island of Heligoland.

The installation vessel can transport up to four offshore wind turbines in the multi-megawatt class at the same time and then install them in water depths of more than 40m.

Peter Terium, Deputy CEO of RWE, said: “With the naming of Victoria Mathias we are ushering in the age of commercial offshore wind energy for RWE in the German North Sea, and eliminating an important bottleneck in the construction of offshore windfarms.

The specialised vessel, which is more than 100m long with a breadth of 40m, will be completed at Lloyd Werft shipyard in Germany.
