January 26 - ScottishPower Renewables has contracted BOW Terminal Vlissingen for the provision of a marshalling yard for the East Anglia ONE Project.
The 12-14 ha marshalling yard will be used for the storage of the project foundations which consist of a total of 102 jackets and 306 pin piles. The maximum weights of these heavy lifts are approximately 900 tonnes and 220 tonnes respectively.
BOW Terminal claims that as well as providing the storage area, it will also coordinate and execute all horizontal and vertical transport for the jackets and pin piles at the terminal.
Charlie Jordan, ScottishPower Renewables project director for East Anglia ONE, said: "BOW Terminal best matched the requirements for East Anglia ONE, and we look forward to work commencing later this year."
According to BOW Terminal, the works will commence in the second half of 2017.
