The main contractor for the development of the Dutch wind farm, a joint operation between the Japanese company Mitsubishi Corporation and Eneco Group, is Van Oord.

The wind turbine construction jack-up vessel Aeolus installed 10 foundations out of 43 so far since the start of the construction a month ago.

Eneco Luchterduinen features new foundations where the monopile and the transition piece, which are usually built as two separate components, are built as a single component.

The construction is expected to be completed by mid 2015.
