GeoSea to Set Up Albatros Foundations

DEME’s offshore marine engineering subsidiary GeoSea has received the ‘Notice to Proceed’ for fabrication and offshore installation of 16 wind turbine foundations and 1 offshore transformer module (OTM) for the EnBW Albatros offshore wind farm.

The Albatros offshore wind farm is located in the so-called “exclusive economic zone” of the North Sea, in the immediate vicinity of the EnBW wind farms Hohe See and He Dreiht, approximately 90 km north of the island of Borkum in the German North Sea. The project will cover an area of around 11 square kilometers with water depths of up to 40 meters and will feature 16 turbines of type Siemens SWT-7.0-154 with a total installed capacity of 112 megawatts.

The design of the offshore foundations for the Albatros wind farm is based on monopole and transition piece foundations. Fabrication of the foundations is foreseen in 2017/2018 whilst offshore installation will take place in 2018 together with the offshore installation of the EnBW Hohe See offshore wind farm.

Christopher Iwens, general manager of DEME’s German subsidiaries: “We see the award of the Albatros project as a recognition by our Clients of our continuous strive for efficiency and synergies in the execution of projects. Our presence in Germany also strengthens our relationships with all our German partners and as offshore foundation specialist we are proud to support Siemens in the entry to the German offshore wind market with the Siemens Offshore Transformer Module (OTM). The Albatros contract gives continuity to our project portfolio in Germany and will be handled by our local project team of experts from our regional offices in Bremen.”
