Van Oord to Build East-Anglia Wind Farm Foundation
Van Oord has been awarded the contract for East Anglia ONE offshore windfarm by ScottishPower Renewables (part of the Iberdrola Group) for the transport and installation of 102 three-legged jacket foundations. This is the largest amount of three-legged foundations in a wind farm ever installed worldwide. The East Anglia ONE offshore windfarm is located in the southern North Sea, 45 kilometers southeast of the town of Lowestoft, United Kingdom. The offshore wind farm will have 102 Siemens 7 MW wind turbines, with a total capacity of 714 MW. Once operational in 2020, the offshore wind farm will deliver sustainable energy to 500,000 households.
Van Oord will be responsible for the logistics of all jacket foundations and piles, sourced from various suppliers, and the transport to the marshalling port of Flushing in The Netherlands. From there the foundations will be transported and installed with an installation vessel. The installation work is planned between half of April 2018 and the end of October 2018.
