Polish shipyard ST3 Offshore has shipped the last load of jacket foundations for Orsted’s 450MW Borkum Riffgrund 2 wind farm in the German North Sea. 

Load out started in February, with the seventh and last shipment departing from Szcecin on 12 June, the fabricator said. 


ST3 was awarded a contract to fabricate 20 jacket foundations for the Borkum Riffgrund 2 project, including outfitting with electrical equipment. Harland and Wolff won the contract to manufacture the suction buckets for the foundations. 

ST3 management board vice president Adam Kowalski said: “The contract has been realised successfully and according to the plan agreed with the client.”

The company said it is in negotiations for new contracts without providing any further details.
