Westermeerwind Foundations in Place

The last of the 48 monopiles was installed on May 23 at the Westermeerwind wind farm, located at the IJsselmeer, the Netherlands.

The construction kicked off in March this year, marking the setup of the first monopile, weighting about 250 tons.

The 35 meters long foundation piles were delivered from Vlissingen to the project site, located around 500 meters from the coast of Noordermeer Dijk.

The project, scheduled for completion in early 2016, will see each of the Westermeerwind 48 turbines, provided by Siemens, have a capacity of 3MW.

VBMS, formely VSMC will design, supply and install infield cables between 48 wind turbine generators and 6 export cables to the onshore substation.
