Bladt Sends Off Last Calvados Transition Pieces
Bladt Industries has sent off the last transition piece for the 448 MW Calvados offshore wind project in France, also known as the Courseulles-sur-Mer offshore wind farm.
The last transition piece for the Calvados offshore wind farm sailed out from Bladt Industries’ location in Aalborg, Denmark, to marshalling destination in Vlissingen, the Netherlands.
With the load out of the last 8 of a total of 64 foundations, Bladt has completed the scope of work for the project.
The company was subcontracted by Saipem, EPCI contract, to deliver transition pieces for the French offshore wind farm.
Each unit has a height of 24 metres and a weight of approximately 550 tonnes. Fabrication and load out of all 64 transition pieces took place at Bladt Industries’ production facilities in Aalborg.
The consortium behind the 450 MW offshore wind farm, also known as the Courseulles-sur-Mer offshore wind farm, comprises EDF Renewables, EIH S.à.r.l. (a subsidiary of Enbridge Inc. and CPP Investments) and Skyborn Renewables.
The developers reached the financial close and started construction on the EUR 2 billion project in February 2021.
