Van Oord has signed a contract with the Swedish energy company Vattenfall for the transport and installation of the foundations for Kriegers Flak wind farm.
Van Oord will install the project’s 72 monopiles and transition pieces.
With a production capacity of just over 600 MW Kriegers Flak will be Denmark’s largest offshore wind farm and is scheduled to be fully operational by the end of 2021. The Danish Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm is constructed in the Baltic Sea across a range of 15 to 40 kilometres from the Danish coast. The monopiles will be transported floating from Rostock, Germany and the transition pieces will be transported on barges from Aalborg, Denmark to the project location.
