Van Oord has started its next campaign to install jacket foundations at the East Anglia One wind farm.

Twelve of the 102 three-legged jacket foundations have been installed at the East Anglia One wind farm, at depths of down to 55m in the southern North Sea, located 45km southeast of Lowestoft.

Scottish Power Renewables commissioned Van Oord as contractor for the project, responsible for transport and installation of the offshore wind turbine foundations, including logistics and deployment of the equipment.

Currently 12 jackets have been successfully installed on the pre-installed piles, with East Anglia One having the largest number of three-legged foundations ever installed in a wind farm.

Heavy lift vessel Aegir placed jackets from the transport barges on to the pre-installed piles.

The jackets, along with piles for the scheme, were fabricated by Lamprell at yards in Jebel Ali, Hamriyah and Sharjah.

In June, GE reported that the first jacket had been installed. 

With a total of 102 Siemens 7MW wind turbines East Anglia One wind farm will ultimately deliver a total of 714MW.

Once the wind farm becomes operational in 2020, it will supply green energy to 500,000 households.
