Van Oord to Install Arkona Foundations

Energy supplier E.ON has awarded the contract for the transport and installation of foundations at the Arkona offshore wind project in the German Baltic Sea to Van Oord.

Van Oord will install the project’s 60 monopiles and transition piece foundations.

For installing foundations at the Arkona offshore wind project, Van Oord intends to deploy its heavy lift installation vessel Svanen.

Arnoud Kuis, managing director of Van Oord offshore wind projects: “The installation strategy is based on the proven feeder concept bringing foundation components floating to the Svanen at the installation site. This method has been optimized over recent years resulting in highly efficient installation cycles.”

The Svanen has already installed over 500 monopiles using this method.

The installation works are planned for 2017.
