On 23 August 2018, on board the Pacific Osprey, an accident had occurred during maintenance work on the crane. Therefore, an alternative installation ship was provided to complete the installation of the foundations. In November, the Monopiles and Transition Pieces, which had already been loaded on the “Pacific Osprey”, were reloaded from the port of Eemshaven, the Netherlands, by the “Gulliver” heavy duty floating crane. The foundation installation was resumed in the first quarter of 2019.

EnBW is building the Hohe See wind farm and the Albatros wind farm as a 610-megawatt project. The construction site is located very far out in the North Sea, about 100 kilometers northwest of Helgoland island. On an area of ​​around 53 square kilometers, the wind farms will generate electricity for around 710,000 households from 2019 onwards.
