TWD Backs East Anglia One Jacket Installation

The Netherlands-based Temporary Works Design (TWD) has provided Van Oord with a jacket lifting tool for the installation of the foundations at the East Anglia One offshore wind farm.

According to TWD, the tool, delivered to Van Oord in early February, helped speed up the installation sequence of the jacket foundations at the wind farm in the UK North Sea.

The jacket lifting tool has a lifting capacity of over 1,000t and is fully remotely controlled, thus the crew does not have to access the top of the jackets, the Dutch company said.

TWD said the tool is designed so it can be tailored to meet specific needs and requirements, such as lifting capacity, tugger arrangements and survey equipment, and is also adaptable for different flange diameters since it will be used for future installation projects.

The vessel Bokalift 1 recently installed the first two jacket foundations at the East Anglia One offshore wind project some 45km off Lowestoft.

The 714MW wind farm will comprise 102 7MW Siemens Gamesa turbines scheduled for full commissioning in 2020.
