Construction Starts at Nordergründe Offshore Wind Site

Offshore construction of the Nordergründe wind farm is kicking off this week, with the MPI Enterprise vessel already loading monopiles and transition pieces in Cuxhaven, according to German media. 

After being contacted by Offshore WIND, wpd, the developer of the offshore wind project, confirmed the construction start without revealing any further details.

Bilfinger Marine & Offshore Systems has been contracted to carry out the installation works, scheduled to be completed in fall this year. The MPI Enterprise jack-up vessel will transport and install three sets of foundations at a time.

The transition pieces and monopiles for Nordergründe offshore wind farm are built by Ambau, which is also supplying wind turbine towers, thus manufacturing the complete steel structure below the nacelle.

The offshore wind farm is being constructed at a water depth of 10m, approximately 15km north-east of the island of Wangerooge. The 110MW wind farm will feature 18 Senvion’s 6.15MW turbines.
