Van Oord in French jacket foundation installation first


Van Oord has completed the installation of 62 jacket foundations at a new wind farm off the coast of Brittany

Van Oord used its offshore installation vessel Aeolus to install the 190 pin piles and teamed up with other partners to install the jackets.
