Iemants unwraps Burbo 2 kit
Tower components arrive at Northern Ireland assembly base
Iemants has loaded out the 985-tonne substation jacket for Dong Energy’s Burbo Bank 2 wind farm in the Irish Sea.
The jacket is being transported by the Matador 3 vessel from the company's Hoboken facility to the Engie Fabricorm yard where it will be loaded onto a pontoon.
The substation jacket was loaded out on Wednesday, according to lemants.
Elsewhere, MHI Vestas tower components for the project have begun arriving in Belfast Harbour.
The manufacturer’s V165-8MW turbines will be pre-assembled at the Northern Ireland facility ahead of a September load out to the project site by A2Sea’s Sea Installer.
Works to prepare the 50-acre Belfast site are complete with a main crane installed recently.
Burbo’s transition pieces, manufactured by OSB and Bladt, and EEW-made foundations will be shipped to the Irish Sea site from Cammell Laird.
Van Oord is to kick of the installation campaign in the summer with its heavylift vessel Svanen to be deployed.
