Jumbo Offshore wraps up its scope of Baltic Eagle work
Jumbo Offshore has officially closed its scope of work for the Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm in the German Baltic Sea. The scope of work included the installation of 50 transition pieces in partnership with Van Oord.
Van Oord has already said that the foundation and inter-array cable installation for Iberdrola’s Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm was completed earlier this month. Van Oord said it performed the installation in two campaigns with Spliethoff’s Brouwersgracht and Jumbo’s Fairplayer.
Jumbo Offshore now said that its heavy-lift vessel Fairplayer completed the installation scope with the grouting operation for the 50th and final transition piece. The whole job, from the vessel reservation agreement to the first transition piece installation, took three months.
Van Oord is familiar with the Jumbo Offshore team from when it worked on the Arkona Offshore Wind Farm together.
The Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm is located in the German Baltic Sea, 30 kilometres northeast of the island of Rügen. With a production capacity of 476 MW, Iberdrola’s Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm will generate renewable energy equivalent to the consumption of 475,000 households while reducing carbon emissions by nearly 800,000 tonnes annually. Van Oord also contracted Jumbo Offshore to transport 33 TPs from the port of Mukran in Germany to the site and support with the installation, including grouting, bolting and completion works.
