Offshore piling work for the 400-MW Rampion wind farm off southern England will be paused for a second time this winter to protect local fish.  

Work on piling the turbine foundations into the sea was halted last month because of the black bream spawning season and is due to restart in July. Piling work will not be allowed between November 20 and January 15, 2017 to protect spawning herring, The Argus reported.

Dong Energy’s chief executive Henrik Poulsen says he expects more companies in the offshore oil and gas business to bid for a slice of the fast growing offshore wind market. He is right, and they already are, in fast-growing numbers, not least because offshore wind is expected to have the highest relative growth rate in renewable energy technology in the OECD from 2014-2020.

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.
