Deutsche Bucht Jacket Load-Out in Vlissingen

The load-out of the jacket for the Northland Power’s Deutsche Bucht offshore wind farm offshore substation took place in Vlissingen, the Netherlands on Tuesday.

The jacket, weighing more than 1,700 tons shall be shipped to the German North Sea at the beginning of March, the company said.

The substation topside, which was assembled at the Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen yard, shall be loaded on the pontoon later this month.

The joint venture Smulders-Eiffage was chosen by Van Oord for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the topside and jacket.

Smulders was to cover the steel constructions, architectural outfitting, sea fastening and load out of the topside plus the steel construction, sea fastening and load out of the jacket. Its partner CG was responsible for the HV/MV, while Eiffage was in charge of the LX/AUX.

The Deutsche Bucht offshore wind farm, owned by Northland Power, will have 33 turbines, situated 95 kilometers northwest of Germany’s Borkum Island.

The wind farm will have a total capacity of 269 megawatts, which will be sufficient to power approximately 328,000 households.
