Van Oord to Install Foundations, Inter-Array Cables on Iberdrola’s German OWF

Van Oord has signed a contract with Iberdrola for the installation of monopile foundations and the supply, transportation, and installation of inter-array cables for the Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm in Germany.

The offshore construction specialist will deploy its heavy lift installation vessel Svanen to install the project’s 50 foundations, starting in 2023.

Van Oord’s cable-laying vessel Nexus and the trencher Dig-It will be used for the inter-array cable laying and, due to challenging soil conditions in the Baltic Sea, the trencher will be customized to ensure proper execution of the cable laying works.

As reported earlier this month, the offshore wind farm’s 50 foundations and the corresponding transition pieces will be manufactured and delivered by EEW SPC and Windar, while the project’s 50 Vestas 9.5 MW wind turbines will be installed by Fred. Olsen Windcarrier.

The Iemants-Fabricom joint venture is responsible for manufacturing all structural elements of the offshore substation, which will be transported and installed by Heerema Marine Contractors. Siemens Gas and Power will deliver all main electrical equipment for Iberdrola’s low-voltage part of the OSS.

Baltic Eagle, for which was awarded 476 MW of capacity during the transitional auction held in 2018, is located northeast of the Rügen island off the Pomeranian coast in the Baltic Sea in water depths of 40-45 meters.

Scheduled to be fully operational by the end of 2024, the offshore wind farm will supply renewable energy to 475,000 households while saving nearly one million tons of CO2 emissions each year.
