Bladt loads out first Hornsea Two transition pieces

In: FoundationsWindfarms
Bladt Industries has loaded out the first batch of transition pieces for the Hornsea Two offshore wind farm, from its facility in Aalborg, Denmark.

The wind farm will feature 165 foundations in total, and Bladt Industries will deliver the 135 transitions pieces. Its last loadout will take place during 2021.

The remaining 30 transition pieces are being manufactured by EEW OSB at its factory in Teesside, with the first load out having recently been completed. The project's 165 monopiles are being produced by EEW OSB's parent company, EEW SPC.  

Hornsea Two will surpass its predecessor Hornsea One, by generating 1.4 GW of clean energy once complete in 2022. Offshore works are set to ramp up in the coming weeks.

Monopile works are due to commence at the wind farm location, 89 km from landfall, this month with DEME Group’s offshore installation vessel,
Innovation. Besides Innovation, Pacific Orca will begin works on location next year to support construction. Both are heavy-lift jack up vessels which have legs that can securely fix the ship to the seabed, raise the vessel from the water whilst onboard cranes lift and manoeuvre the heavy foundation components.

In total, 165 monopiles and transition pieces will be installed at sea in preparation for the site’s 8.4 MW turbines. With a height from sea level to blade tip of 204 metres, the turbines will also feature new 82 metre long blades, currently being fabricated at the Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy blade factory in Hull.
