VIDEO: Installation of Arkona Transition Pieces
Following the installation of all 60 transition pieces at the Arkona offshore wind farm in mid-January, Jumbo posted a video showing the works that were completed ahead of schedule at the offshore wind farm site in Germany.
All of the transition pieces (TPs) were installed floating in DP2 mode by Jumbo's Heavy Lift Crane Vessel (HLCV) Fairplayer, which was outfitted with an SMST gangway shortly before the works started in early November 2017.
The 400t TPs were taken from the port of Mukran on the Rügen Island to the construction site some 35km offshore and bolted onto the monopile foundations which had also been installed earlier than planned.
The Arkona offshore wind farm will comprise 60 Siemens 6MW turbines and is scheduled for commissioning in 2019.
