Arkona ahoy for TPs
Installation underway off Germany using Jumbo vessel Fairplayer
Eon has kicked off installation of transition pieces at its 385MW Arkona offshore wind farm in the German Baltic Sea.
Van Oord has subcontracted installation of the 60 Bladt-built TPs to Jumbo Offshore, which will use its Fairplayer vessel to tackle the job.
Earlier this week, Van Oord vessel Svanen installed the last 60 EEW-fabricated monopile foundations in water depths ranging from 23 to 37 metres.
The project site is located 35km north-east of Rügen island in the German Baltic Sea.
Arkona will consist of 60 Siemens Gamesa 6.4MW turbines and is slated to be fully commissioned in 2019.
