Siemens has chosen the Navantia-Windar joint venture for the supply of three-legged jacket foundations and accompanying piles for four 7MW offshore wind turbines to be installed as part of the Nissum Bredning Vind demo project in Denmark.

The Spanish companies will carry out the project in parallel to the construction of 42 jackets for East Anglia One at the Navantia Fene facility, Navantia said.

The delivery of the last Nissum Bredning jackets is planned to take place by mid-2017.

Nissum Bredning Vindmøllelaug and Jysk Energi, which placed the winning bid for Nissum Bredning Vind project last year, following a call for tender from Danish Energy Agency’s (DEA), have made the final investment decision for the 28MW pilot project in September 2016.

The offshore wind project will see four Siemens 7MW direct drive wind turbines on jacket foundations, as well as a new 66kV voltage solution including a new transformer, cable and switchgear systems, along with further innovations regarding tower and controller settings.

The elements to be tested in Nissum Bredning are expected to contribute to cost reduction of future offshore wind projects.
