Wind Energy – Vineyard Wind 1
On May 25, 2023, the Vineyard Wind 1 offshore substation and jacket foundation left the quay at Bladt Industries’ production site in Southern Denmark heading for its destination 35 miles from mainland Massachusetts, USA.
The sail away is on time according to the original schedule and is a major milestone for the project team from Bladt Industries, Semco Maritime and ISC Consulting Engineers.
Vineyard Wind 1 is carried out as an EPC contract, with ISC as a subcontractor, covering the design, procurement and construction of the 3,200 tons offshore substation and a 2,000 tons jacket foundation with four piles, which form the permanent anchorage to the seabed.
After arrival at the installation site, Vineyard Wind LLC will perform installation of the substation whereafter Semco Maritime and Bladt Industries will take over and begin work on the offshore commissioning during the summer.
