The Luxembourg-headquartered Jan De Nul Group has signed a contract with Vattenfall Vindkraft Kriegers Flak P/S for the transport and installation of 72 8.4MW Siemens wind turbine generators for the Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm (OWF) in Denmark.
The Marine contractor said that the Kriegers Flak OWF is located in the Baltic Sea in water depths varying between 15 and 30 metres, at 15 kilometres from shore. In 2017-18, Jan De Nul Group already built, towed and installed two large Gravity Based Foundations for the Offshore High Voltage stations of the Kriegers Flak OWF.
“We are proud to have been awarded an offshore WTG installation project of this magnitude”, says Philippe Hutse, Offshore Director at Jan De Nul Group. “It confirms that Jan De Nul is a trustworthy experienced partner in installing large wind farms at sea. Our investments in knowhow and equipment for offshore installation works bear fruit”.
Installation works will start in the first quarter of 2021 and will take four months.
