Denmark’s Bladt Industries is in charge of manufacturing and delivering the remaining 59 transition pieces.
EEW SPC, the parent company of EEW OSB, will deliver 47 monopiles for the wind farm. Dutch offshore foundations specialist Sif Holding will produce the remaining 47 monopiles.
The monopiles, transition pieces, and anode cages built in the UK, Germany, and Denmark will be transported to Maasvlakte 2 in the Port of Rotterdam, where they will be assembled and prepared for offshore construction.
