Bladt scores foundation contract for Vattenfall's Danish projects

Bladt Industries announced that it has secured a contract to deliver Transition Pieces (TP) for the two Danish nearshore wind farms, Vesterhav Syd & Nord.

Vattenfall awarded Bladt Industries a contract for the fabrication of 41 TPs for the Vesterhav project, 21 units for Vesterhav Nord and 20 units for Vesterhav Syd.
The fabrication is planned to start in the spring of 2022, with delivery planned for early 2023. Each TP will have a height of 22,5 meters and a weight of approximately 260 tons. The fabrication of the TP’s will take place at Bladt Industries’ facilities in Aalborg, Denmark.

“We are excited to be supplying TP’s for a Danish windfarm and super proud to, again be working with one of Europe's largest energy companies and experienced offshore developers” said Anders Søe-Jensen, CEO, Bladt Industries.

“Vattenfall is just like Bladt interested in taking a social responsibility and this project will ensure an education platform for a number of our apprentices that will participate in the manufacturing of the transition pieces”, added Anders Søe-Jensen.

The two projects will be located 10 km off the West coast of Jutland near Thyborøn (Nord) and Søndervig (Syd) in water depths of approximately 20 meters.Vesterhav Nord will have a capacity of 180 MW and will consist of 21 SG 8.0-167 DD turbines, each with a rated power of 8.4 MW. Vesterhav Syd will have a capacity of 170 MW and will consist of 20 turbines. Combined, the projects will supply electricity equivalent to the annual consumption of 350,000 Danish households. Vattenfall secured permits for the two Vesterhav wind areas in 2016 for 47.5 øre/kWh (€63.8/MWh). The two offshore wind farms will increase Danish electricity production from wind turbines by approximately 10 percent.
