By January 2018, all 60 transition pieces had been installed on the Arkona offshore windfarm, with the transformer station due to be delivered this spring.
Construction of the Arkona project in the German sector of the Baltic is progressing at a fast pace. After all of the foundations were installed, attention turned to the transition pieces, all of which are now in place. Monopile foundations were selected for the project and were installed in water depths ranging from 23 m to 37 m.
The transition pieces, each weighing 400 tonnes, were transported from the port of Mukran to the construction site in the Q4 2017, thus completing the second major construction phase of the project.
