Turbine transport and installation
Windfarm developer Vattenfall Vindkraft Kriegers Flak P/S has signed a contract for the transport and installation of 72 8.4MW Siemens Wind Turbine Generators (WTG) for its Kriegers Flak Offshore Wind Farm in Denmark.
“We are proud to have been awarded an offshore WTG installation project of this magnitude”, said Philippe Hutse, Offshore Director at Jan De Nul Group, the Luxembourg major that won the contract. “It confirms that Jan De Nul is a trustworthy experienced partner in installing large wind farms at sea. Our investments in knowhow and equipment for offshore installation works bear fruit”.
The Kriegers Flak OWF is located in the Baltic Sea in water depths varying between 15 and 30 metres, at 15 kilometres from shore. In 2017-18, Jan De Nul Group already built, towed and installed two large Gravity Based Foundations for the Offshore High Voltage stations of the Kriegers Flak OWF.
Installation works will start in the first quarter of 2021 and will take four months.
