Photo of the Day: Smulders Lines Up Scottish Projects’ Jackets in Newcastle

Smulders has published a photo of its Newscastle site at night, housing jacket foundations for the Beatrice and Aberdeen Bay offshore wind farms that find their mirror in the Tyne river.

In September, the first jacket top sections for the Aberdeen Bay wind farm (also known as the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre/ EOWDC) arrived to Newcastle from Smulders’ fabrication yard in Hoboken, Belgium. Earlier in November, Smulders started assembling the EOWDC jackets.

Also, the company is in charge of delivering 28 jacket foundations for the Beatrice offshore wind farm. As with EOWDC, the upper jacket parts are produced at the Smulders yards in Belgium, whereas the lower jacket parts are produced at the Smulders Projects UK yard in Newcastle upon Tyne.

The foundation installation at the Beatrice site is currently under way, while at the EOWDC it is scheduled to start in January 2018.
