For the largest offshore wind farm in Denmark, Jan De Nul Group is installing a total of 72 wind turbines of 8.4MW each on behalf of Vattenfall Denmark.
Today, Jan De Nul is halfway: 36 windmills to go.
On 27 January, Jan De Nul, Siemens Gamesa and Vattenfall successfully installed the very first wind turbine for the Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm. The last turbine is scheduled to be installed in mid-June, approximately 4.5 months after the start of this installation campaign.
Kriegers Flak will become the largest in Denmark and will increase Denmark’s offshore wind production by no less than 16 percent.
Bert Reynvoet, Project Manager of Jan De Nul Group said: “We are proud that we can tick off this milestone nicely on schedule. All 72 wind turbines must be installed within a period of 4.5 months. Our customer’s wishes are paramount and despite the challenging winter weather conditions in the Baltic Sea, COVID-19 and challenging soil conditions for our jack-up installation vessel, we have managed until today to strictly adhere to the installation schedule. Thanks to the commitment, flexibility and professionalism of our co-workers!”
The wind farm is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2021.
