New milestone reached in the construction of the Deutsche Bucht substation
The Deutsche Bucht offshore wind farm will be an impressive wind farm with 33 turbines, situated 95 kilometres northwest of the Borkum Island in Germany. The wind farm will have a total capacity of close to 269 megawatt which will be sufficient to power approximately 328,000 households.
The joint venture Iemants-Eiffage was chosen by Van Oord for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the substation topside and jacket. With DNSN, Damen Shiprepair Vlissingen manages and supports the works and provides Iemants-Eiffage with a small group of professionals for welding -and painting works.
