Poland’s ST3 Offshore has sent off the last shipment of suction bucket jacket foundations built for Ørsted’s Borkum Riffgrund 2 offshore wind farm in the German North Sea.
The final two out of the 20 jackets built by ST3 Offshore for the project left Szczecin on 12 June and headed to Cuxhaven where the remaining 18 units had already been delivered.
Four of the suction bucket foundations have been installed at the site some 34 kilometres North of the island of Borkum, ST3 Offshore said.
Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-up Bold Tern is currently on a sixth run at the wind farm, installing turbines No. 21 through 24. In the fifth run, the first wind turbine was installed on one of the suction bucket jackets.
The wind farm is slated for commissioning in 2019.
