Van Oord heavy lift installation vessel takes on Baltic project
Van Oord has signed a contract with Swedish energy company Vattenfall for the transport and installation of the foundations for the Kriegers Flak wind farm.
Van Oord will install the project’s 72 monopiles and transition pieces.
With a production capacity of over 600 MW, Kriegers Flak will be Denmark’s largest offshore wind farm and is scheduled to be fully operational by the end of 2021.
The monopiles will be transported floating from Rostock, Germany, and the transition pieces will be transported on barges from Aalborg, Denmark, to the project location.
Van Oord will deploy the 8,000-tonne heavy lift installation vessel Svanen for the installation of the foundations.
