ALE Halfway There on Hornsea One Transition Pieces

ALE and their Conbit operation have loaded-out and discharged 54 of the contracted 106 transition pieces for Ørsted’s Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm.

ALE has been contracted by GeoSea to provide the specialist offshore engineering as well as the marine transportation, sea-fastening, load-out and ballasting of the 106 TPs.

For the structural engineering, the Conbit team performed the structural integrity and sea fastening calculations of the grillages on the barge deck of the SARAH S barge – ALE’s latest marine investment.

ALE began their heavy lifting and transportation scope in March, loading-out the TPs, each weighing 337t and measuring 25m high, from the fabrication yard onto the barge and performing the sea-fastening and marine transport.

Once on the SARAH S barge, the TPs are transported on the River Tees to the discharge berth. The operations are expected to last until early 2019.

The 1.2GW Hornsea Project One wind farm will comprise 174 Siemens 7MW wind turbines, three offshore substations and a reactive compensation substation (RCS). Once fully operational in 2020, it will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world.
