First foundation load-out completed

28/01/2013

During the end of last week, the quay of our site in Aalborg hummed with activity more than usual as employees from Bladt and OffshoreWindForce were working to achieve a successful load-out of the first five of a total of 108 foundations for Dong Energy and Scottishpower Renewables’ West of Duddon Sands offshore wind farm.

- Our fabrication of the 108 foundations is proceeding according to schedule, and we are happy to see that we have succeeded in creating a set-up that works. With such a large project, it is always exciting to see which challenges might entail, says Division Manager, Morten Mørk.

The load-out is the first of 22 planned load-outs of foundations for West of Duddon Sands. Each load-out consists of five sets of foundations. The monopiles vary in size and weight from 334-516 tonnes while the transition pieces each weight approximately 300 tonnes. All of the foundations will be fabricated at our facilities in Aalborg.
