The transition pieces will be installed on top of monopiles that will be delivered by Steelwind Nordenham, which received an order from EnBW in May last year.

The foundations will support Vestas’ latest generation V236-15 MW wind turbines whose single unit is capable of generating up to 80 GWh of electricity a year, said Bureau Technical Services.
