Wind energy – Germany
Ørsted Wind Power and Jan De Nul Group announce the signing of the final contract for the transport and installation of 107 monopile foundations and one offshore substation topside at Gode Wind 3 and Borkum Riffgrund 3 Offshore Wind Farm.
The transport and installation will start in 2023 and will be the first assignment for Les Alizés, the next generation offshore installation vessel of Jan De Nul Group.
Both wind farms will use 11-MW Siemens Gamesa turbines and are located in the German North Sea.
The Borkum Riffgrund 3 more particularly will be located adjacent to Ørsted’s existing offshore wind farms Borkum Riffgrund 1 and Borkum Riffgrund 2.
Gode Wind 3 will be close to Ørsted’s Gode Wind 1 and 2.
Jan De Nul’s scope includes the transport and installation of 106 wind turbine monopile foundations and one offshore substation foundation, including associated topside. For the first time, Ørsted will be using monopiles without the need of installing a transition piece for connecting turbine and foundation. Before installation, scour protection will be installed at all 107 monopiles locations.
Delivery is foreseen to be completed in 2024.
