Van Oord has started its next campaign to install jackets at the East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm in the North Sea.

The wind farm’s 102 three-legged jacket foundations will be installed at depths of down to 55 meters in the southern North Sea, located 45 kilometers southeast of Lowestoft, UK.

ScottishPower Renewables commissioned Van Oord as the contractor for this project, responsible for transport and installation of the offshore wind turbine foundations, including logistics and deployment of the equipment.

Currently 12 jackets have already been installed on the pre-installed piles. East Anglia ONE will have the largest number of three-legged foundations ever installed in a wind farm, the company noted.

Heavy lift vessel Aegir started its assignment to place jackets from the transport barges on to the pre-installed piles last week. The vessel is anticipated to perform a number of distinct campaigns over the late summer and autumn of 2018.

With a total of 102 Siemens 7 MW wind turbines East Anglia ONE wind farm will ultimately deliver a total of 714 MW. Once the wind farm becomes operational in 2020, it will supply green energy to 500,000 households.
