The Dutch marine contractor Van Oord has assigned EEW Special Pipe Constructions GmbH to manufacture and deliver 31 monopiles for the offshore wind farm Deutsche Bucht.
The contract was signed on 25 July 2017 in Gorinchem/the Netherlands. “We are extremely pleased to be processing operations together with Van Oord on our third large project after Belwind and Gemini. Van Oord is a strategically important partner for us and the long-standing good relationship acknowledges our successful cooperation” said Michael Hof, COO/Managing Director EEW SPC after the meeting.
The 31 monopiles will be in the XL range where EEW SPC will process more than 35,000 tons of steel in total. The foundations will be manufactured in Rostock between November 2017 and May 2018 so that offshore installation work can commence as planned at the beginning of September 2018.
The offshore wind park will have a capacity of 252 MW, is located approx. 95 km west of the island Borkum and will be realized by the Canadian energy company Northland Power. The offshore wind park is estimated to go on grid at the end of 2019.
