Boskalis has contracted SPT Offshore for installation of 174 suction pile foundations for the foundation of 58 suction bucket jackets for a part of Hornsea offshore wind farm Project One, by DONG Energy Wind Power.
The jackets support the 7.0 MW Siemens wind turbines.
In addition Boskalis has contracted SPT Offshore for the detailed design and installation of 33 suction pile foundations for the foundation of 11 suction bucket jackets for the Aberdeen offshore wind farm, a Vattenfall project.
The jackets support the 8.4MW Vestas wind turbines. Installation is planned later this year in Q3 and Q4.
“The use of suction bucket jacket foundations in conjunction with the very large wind turbines and the use of high capacity 66kV power cables makes this project unique,” SPT Offshore said.
