NAW Staff, Wednesday 27 March 2013 - 12:41:39

Netherlands-based Ballast Nedam has signed a contract for the installation of foundations at the EnBW Baltic 2 offshore wind farm with ARGE BALTIC 2 Foundations, a joint venture between HOCHTIEF Solutions AG, GeoSea N.V. and HOCHTIEF Offshore Crewing GmbH.

Located in the German Baltic Sea, the EnBW Baltic 2 project will comprise 80 wind turbines of 3.6 MW each, giving the wind farm a total capacity of 288 MW. Ballast Nedam will erect the project's 39 monopile and transition piece foundations and provide the logistics between the feeder ports in Rostock and Lubmin and the Baltic 2 offshore wind farm.

The company will use its heavy lift vessel Svanen to install the project's foundations, and installation works for the vessel at Baltic 2 are planned for the second half of this year.
