The company’s heavy-lift jack up Vole au vent is expected to install the second Siemens 4.2MW turbine at the site on Monday evening, 19 June, Suomen Hyötytuuli Oy, the developer of the EUR 120 million wind farm project, said.

Last week, Jan de Nul installed all ten gravity base foundations at the wind farm.

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.

Tahkoluoto is the world’s first offshore wind farm designed for icy conditions.
