Wind Energy – DEME Offshore
Currently DEME’s jack-up vessel Neptune and the chartered vessel Blue Tern are being mobilised at DEME’s offshore base in Flushing to kick off the monopile transport and installation work at RWE’s 342-MW Kaskasi offshore wind farm in Germany.
The Sea Challenger will join the project to install the transition pieces.
The Kaskasi wind farm site is located in the North Sea, approximately 35km north of Heligoland, Germany. It will be installed with 38 Siemens Gamesa SG 8.0-167 DD Flex wind turbines featuring 81m-long B81 IntegralBlades, which are the world’s first recyclable wind turbine blades. Made with the breakthrough RecyclableBlade technology, the blades can be recycled at the end of their lifecycle.
The wind turbines will be installed on monopile structures. Three special collars, which are based on RWE’s patented technology, will be installed around the monopile foundations on the seabed at water depths of up to 25m.
The Sea Installer is getting ready to carry out works for the Fécamp offshore wind farm in France.
