Wind Turbine Installation Vessel MPI Adventure installed the first of 72 SWT-4.0-130 offshore wind turbines on the Sandbank offshore wind farm. MPI Adventure is capable of installing 6 of these complete offshore wind turbines per cycle.

After MPI Adventure completed its contract to assist with the commissioning of the offshore substation on the Sandbank offshore wind farm, she has re-mobilized for the offshore wind turbine installation works. On July 28th, well in advance of its original schedule, the vessel now completed the installation of the first turbine.

MPI was responsible for the design, engineering and manufacturing of the sea fastenings which will be used during the transportation and installation of all the above mentioned turbines. MPI also has and will continue to provide project management throughout the whole turbine campaign.

On completion in 2017, the wind farm will generate green electricity for more than 400,000 households. The Sandbank offshore wind farm is located approximately 90km west of the island of Sylt in the German Bight.
