Jan De Nul has installed all ten gravity base foundations at the Tahkoluoto offshore wind farm off Pori, Finland, Suomen Hyötytuuli Oy, the developer of the 42MW project, told Offshore WIND.
The heavy-lift jack up Vole au vent is now preparing to install the ten Siemens 4.2MW turbines at the site. The turbine installation is expected to start next week, the developer said.
The turbine installation is scheduled to be completed by mid-July, and the subsea cables are expected to be installed by the end of July.
The project is to be commissioned during the autumn of 2017.
The EUR 120 million Tahkoluoto is the world’s first offshore wind farm designed for icy conditions.
