Smulders Loads Out Deutsche Bucht Substation Jacket

Smulders has loaded out the jacket foundation for the Northland Power’s Deutsche Bucht offshore substation in Vlissingen, the Netherlands.

The jacket, weighing more than 1,700 tons, will be transported to the German North Sea at the beginning of March, weather permitting, Smulders said.

The substation topside, which was assembled at the Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen yard, will be loaded onto a pontoon later this month.

The joint venture of Smulders-Eiffage was chosen by Van Oord for the engineering, procurement, construction, and installation of the offshore substation topside and jacket.

Smulders was to cover the steel constructions, architectural outfitting, sea fastening, and load out of the topside; plus the steel construction, sea fastening and load out of the jacket. CG was responsible for the HV/MV, while Eiffage was in charge of the LX/AUX.

Located 95 kilometres northwest of Germany’s Borkum Island, the 269MW Deutsche Bucht will comprise 33 MHI Vestas 8.4MW wind turbines installed on 31 monopile foundations and two mono bucket foundations.

The wind farm is expected to be commissioned by the end of 2019.
