Van Oord set to install foundations for Burbo Bank Extension

Van Oord has agreed a contract with Dong Energy for the installation of foundations at the Burbo Bank Extension offshore wind farm.

Van Oord will install 32 monopiles and transition piece foundations, supply and install the scour protection and provide logistics between the fabrication ports in Germany, Denmark and the UK, and the offshore wind farm which is located 8km off the coast of Liverpool Bay.

Van Oord will use its heavy lift vessel Svanen to install the foundations. To date, Svanen has successfully installed nearly 500 offshore wind turbine foundations.

The installation works are due to take place in summer 2016.
