Van Oord to Install Foundations on Burbo Bank Extension

Van Oord has signed a contract with DONG Energy for the installation of foundations at the Burbo Bank Extension offshore wind farm in the UK.

Van Oord will install the project’s 32 monopiles and transition piece foundations, supply and install the scour protection and provide the logistics between the fabrication ports in Germany, Denmark, the United Kingdom and the offshore wind farm.

The installation works are planned to take place during the summer of 2016.

For installing foundations at the Burbo Bank Extension offshore wind farm, Van Oord will use its heavy lift vessel Svanen. The installation strategy is based on the feeder concept bringing foundation components floating to the Svanen at the installation site.

To date, Svanen has successfully installed nearly 500 offshore wind turbine foundations.
