Wind energy – Seagreen
The wind farm, where Seaway 7 is the main installation contractor, is located 27 kilometers off the coast of Angus in Scotland.
The wind turbines for the 1.1 GW offshore wind farm will be installed on three-legged jacket foundations. After the installation of the jackets scour protection is required to avoid the effects of erosion. This is achieved by high precision rock installation around the jackets.
For this specific project, which started at the end of October 2021, Van Oord is deploying high dynamic flexible fall pipe vessel Bravenes.
In addition, flexible fall pipe vessel Nordnes will be deployed to install scour protection on several cable crossings. All subsea activities will take place in water depths of up to 50 meters.
