The remaining 69 transition pieces will follow during the year.

The last transition piece is scheduled to leave Bladt’s facility in Aalborg in the third quarter of 2020, Bladt said.

The wind farm’s foundation monopiles will be installed by Van Oord’s Svanen which arrived at the installation site earlier this week.

The monopile foundations will support 72 Siemens Gamesa 8.4 MW wind turbines installed in the Danish Baltic Sea some 40 kilometres offshore.

Vattenfall, the owner and developer of the project, plans to have the wind farm fully up and running in 2021.

Once commissioned, the 604.8 MW Kriegers Flak will become Denmark’s largest offshore wind farm.

NOTE: The original article has been amended. Van Oord’s installation vessel Svanen, and not Aeolus as initially stated, will install Kriegers Flak’s monopile foundations.
