Rostock-based EEW Special Pipe Constructions GmbH has started manufacturing the monopiles for Vattenfall's 605MW Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm. The first pipe for the Danish offshore wind farm was made in the Rostock production site this May. By September 2019, all 72 monopiles will have been produced and coated, according to the company. In spring […]
Sif Holding has secured a contract to manufacture two monopiles for the Borssele V demonstrator wind farm in the Dutch North Sea. One of the monopiles will have a slip joint connection between the monopile foundation and the transition piece that connects the foundation and the tower, which has traditionally been a flanged or a grouted […]
DEME Offshore installed the final of the 174 monopile foundations on the 1.2GW Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm on Thursday, 25 April. The first monopile was installed at the site some 120 kilometres off the Yorkshire coast in the UK in January 2018. According to DEME, four of the company's jack-ups has since worked at […]
A2Sea's jack-up vessel Sea Installer has installed the last transition piece on the EnBW Hohe See and Albatros offshore wind projects in Germany. The two projects have a combined capacity of 609MW comprising 87 Siemens Gamesa 7MW turbines installed on monopile foundations some 95km north of Borkum island. Swire Blue Ocean’s jack-up Pacific Osprey started installing foundations at the projects […]
All 20 foundation monopiles built for the Formosa 1 Phase 2 have left the EEW SPC yard in Germany onboard two heavy load transport vessels and are en route to Taichung port in Taiwan, Jan De Nul said. Now that these components for the offshore construction are mobilized, the actual installation operations on site can be kicked […]
GBM Works, a TU Delft spin-off, is set to conduct pilot tests of a new method for installing turbine monopile foundations in the Port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Together with project partners, GBM will conduct the pilot at Maasvlakte beginning in May or June by using a vibro drill method in which foundation piles are […]
A new research project is looking into ways to remove monopile foundations in a sustainable way. Currently, offshore monopiles are removed by cutting them off several metres below the seabed, which leaves behind tonnes of steel buried in the seabed. The Hydraulic Pile Extraction Scale Tests (HyPE-ST) project aims at developing innovative and smart technology […]
Dutch offshore foundations manufacturer Sif is adapting its production facilities in Roermond and the Maasvlakte in response to new design standards and stricter requirements being defined for coating. The stricter requirements for coating are a response to the wind industry’s ambition to venture into deeper waters, lower the cost price, and generate more energy, Sif said. […]
Two of the largest and heaviest monopiles in the world have been fabricated in China. Weighing in at 1,600 tons, the monopiles are the first of 500 to be manufactured for SPIC Guangdong Offshore Wind Power's offshore wind projects in the Guangdong province. According to Ramboll, the designer of the foundations, the monopiles are installed at 37m, […]
