Boskalis wins Aberdeen contract

July 22 - Royal Boskalis Westminster (Boskalis) has been awarded the offshore balance of plant contract by Vattenfall for the construction of an offshore wind farm in Aberdeen, dubbed European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC).

The project will comprise 11 wind turbines with a capacity of 92.4 MW. Under the terms of the contract, Boskalis will handle all offshore elements for the wind farm, except the wind turbine supply.

The scope of Boskalis' work will include the design, procurement, fabrication, supply, transportation and installation of 11 suction bucket jacket foundations and scour protection; the procurement, supply, transportation and installation of inter array and export cables by Boskalis subsidiary VBMS; and the provision of the wind turbine transportation and installation vessel.

Scheduled to commence in September 2017, the project will see foundations and cables transported and installed using Boskalis' own equipment, including a fallpipe vessel, transport barges, a large floating sheerleg crane and a cable-laying vessel.

Completion of the project is expected in the second quarter of 2018. The offshore wind farm is located approximately 3 km off the coast of Aberdeen, UK.
