Bladt has successfully completed the first lifting operation of the External Platform onto the upper jacket 3D structure for the first out of 30 jacket foundations for the Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Ltd (BOWL) project.
Bladt Industries will provide 30 four-legged jacket foundations for the wind farm. The jacket foundations will have a height of up to approximately 70 metres with weights of up to approximately 900 tons - making them significantly larger than previous jackets structures fabricated at Lindoe.
The £2.6bn Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Ltd (BOWL) project has been given the green light for construction by owners SSE (40%), Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) (35%) and Red Rock Power Limited (25%) after reaching Financial Close on 23 May 2016. The project will be one of the largest private investments ever made in Scottish infrastructure.
