As a joint venture, Bladt Industries A/S and EEW Special Pipe Constructions GmbH have been awarded a construction contract by Offshore Windforce VM V.O.F. (a joint venture consisting of Volker Stevin International GmbH and Boskalis Offshore Marine Contracting B.V) for the supply of 67 monopile foundations for the Veja Mate Offshore Wind Farm.
EEW SPC will fabricate the 67 monopiles at their facilities in Rostock, Germany. For this project, the monopiles will have a diameter of up to 7.8 meters, a length of up to 84.8 meters and have a single weight of 1,200 tonnes in average.
At Bladt Industries’ headquarters in Aalborg, Denmark, the 67 transition pieces will be fabricated with a diameter of up to 6.8 meters, an average weight of 350 tonnes and a length of approximately 22 meters. Compared to previous projects executed in Europe, the dimensions of these foundations are relatively large; however, both companies have continuously geared their facilities to accommodate the increasing size of offshore foundations.
