Van Oord Wraps Up Burbo Bank Extension Foundations Installation

Van Oord’s heavy lift installation vessel Svanen has completed the last of the 32 foundations at the Burbo Bank Extension project.

With a total of 32 Vestas wind turbines of 8 MW each to be installed, the offshore wind farm will have a total capacity of 258 MW.

The offshore wind farm will provide electricity to 180,000 homes and is expected to be operational early 2017, the company informed.

Van Oord was responsible for the installation of the foundations, supply and installation of the scour protection and provided the logistics of the foundations between the fabrication ports in Germany, Denmark, the United Kingdom and the offshore wind farm.

The Burbo Bank Extension project is located 8 km off the coast in Liverpool Bay, United Kingdom.
