On 1 July 2015 Van Oord’s own installation vessel Aeolus, together with Swire Blue Oceans Pacific Osprey, started installation and the last foundation was installed on 17 October.

The installation of the foundations was completed one month earlier than scheduled.

On 1 February 2016 both vessels will return to the project, completely modified for the installation of the 150 wind turbines. They will sail from Esbjerg in Denmark, where the wind turbines are produced and stored at Siemens, directly to the Gemini Wind Park.
