Jan De Nul Group will transport and install 87 GE Haliade-X turbines at the Dogger Bank C offshore wind farm, which is jointly owned by SSE Renewables and Equinor.
Dogger Bank C is located up to 200 km off the Yorkshire coast, UK. Jan De Nul has already been awarded the transport and installation scope for the Dogger Bank A and B packages. Its newbuild vessel Voltaire will install 277 wind turbines in total across the three phases.
Steve Wilson, Dogger Bank wind farm’s project director at SSE Renewables, said: “Jan De Nul Group has a great track record for the transportation and installation of turbines on scale, and offshore wind farms don’t come any bigger than ours. With a lifting capacity of more than 3,000 tonnes, the ultra-clean Voltaire vessel is set to become the world’s largest jack-up vessel when it enters service in 2022. Securing this state-of-the-art vessel for all three phases of Dogger Bank Wind Farm is another reminder of how we’re working with our suppliers to drive innovation in offshore wind.”
