EEW Special Pipe Construction has completed steel construction on all of the monopiles for Vattenfall’s Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm at its plant in Rostock, Germany.
72 monopiles are now structurally ready and the next step is to coat the units, some of which are up to 65.6 metres long. This work should be completed by February 2020. EEW SPC started working on the monopiles for the 605MW wind farm in May.
“Vattenfall would like to thank EEW for another project, which was delivered in full accordance with our high expectation to EEW’s performance until this stage. The processing of the 72 monopiles went smooth and we are looking forward to the impressive load out operations next year,” said Ian Bremner, Project Director Vattenfall for DKF.
In May 2020, the monopiles will be floated across to the installation site. The foundations will be loaded with the new 164-metre high heavy-duty crane from Liebherr.
“We would like to thank Vattenfall for the good professional cooperation in the Kriegers Flak project. So far everything has gone smoothly and we are pleased to have been able to contribute to the success of the project,” said Heiko Mützelburg, CEO/Managing Director at EEW SPC.
The Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm will feature 72 Siemens Gamesa 8.4MW turbines installed 15-40 kilometres offshore in the Danish Baltic Sea.
