On Sunday September 30, Heerema’s Aegir successfully installed the DOT wind turbine on its previously installed monopile connected by a Slip Joint.
Heerema Marine Contractors, project stakeholder of the SJOR-consortium, decided to step into this project to present herself to the industry as an installation contractor who is also focusing on the transportation and installation of wind turbine foundations & turbines.
The DOT wind turbine is located in the Eneco Princess Amalia Wind Park off the coast of Ijmuiden. The complete wind turbine was picked up in a single lift by Heerema’s lifting vessel Aegir from the quay of Sif Rotterdam and transported towards its designated location. The fully assembled turbine was installed by Aegir as a floating vessel and kept in position by Dynamic Positioning (DP). The installation of the wind turbine took less than 1 hour in total, which is noticeably faster than usual installation.
