DEME Group’s offshore marine engineering division GeoSea and Siemens have concluded an EPCI foundation contract for the Hohe See offshore wind farm.
The new contract confirms Germany as a key market for the Belgian dredging, environmental and marine engineering group following its recent acquisition of the offshore assets and personnel from its former German partner Hochtief.
The Hohe See offshore wind farm (owned by EnBW) is situated approx. 90 km north of the island of Borkum in the German North Sea. The project will cover an area of around 40 square kilometres with water depths of up to 39 m. With a total installed capacity of 497 MW, the Hohe See wind farm is currently the biggest planned offshore wind project in Germany.
GeoSea’s EPCI contract includes the design, engineering, procurement, fabrication and installation of 71 foundations consisting of a monopole and transition piece.
