May 2016

Beginning of May the construction team successfully installed the foundation of the offshore substation at the Nordsee One construction site. The foundation, which weighs more than 1,400 tons, traveled from Aalborg in Denmark; from there it was a five day journey across the North Sea, to the port of Eemshaven in the Netherlands. After loading the piling hammer, the foundation was transported to the Nordsee One construction site, where a floating crane placed the heavyweight jacket foundation onto the sea bed. The 50-meter tall foundation was anchored with four piles on the four pedestals in the bottom of the sea. Each pile has a weight of over 240 tons and a length of over 67 meters.
