PUBLIC PROFILE

E.ON has awarded a contract for the transport and installation of the foundations for the Arkona offshore windfarm project in the Baltic to Van Oord. Van Oord will install a total of 60 monopiles and transition pieces and intends to use the heavy-lift installation vessel Svanen to do so.

Managing director of Van Oord’s offshore wind projects division, Arnoud Kuis said: “The installation strategy is based on the proven feeder concept, bringing foundation components to Svanen at the installation site. This method has been optimised over recent years resulting in highly efficient installation cycles.” The foundations will be towed to the installation site and then installed by the heavy lifter.
