BigLift Shipping’s Happy Star has been contracted to transport 4 monopiles and 11 transition pieces for the Akita Noshiro wind farm.
This is Japan’s first large-scale offshore wind project.
With a very short lead time, grillage and saddles were designed and manufactured by BigLift, all in accordance to project requirements.
The 139 MW Akita-Noshiro project comprises two sites off Akita Port and Noshiro Port. Thirteen Vestas V117-4.2 MW typhoon variant turbines will be installed at the Akita site, while the Noshiro site will comprise 20 turbines.
