VIDEO: Foundation Setup on Borkum Riffgrund 1 OWF

Last week, all 77 monopile foundations were successfully installed at the offshore wind farm Borkum Riffgrund 1 in the German North Sea.

The 77 units consisted of monopiles, weighing between 495 tonnes and 684 tonnes and measuring a diameter of 5.9 metres and a length of up to 66m, and transition pieces of weighing around 330 tonnes.
