The first eight monopiles for the Dominion Energy Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Project were loaded at the Rostock quayside.
In preparation for RoRo loading, the monopiles were lifted into the transport cradle using the Strand Jack system. Now aboard the carrier deck, the foundations are on their way to Portsmouth Marine Terminal in Portsmouth, Va., USA, where they will arrive in approximately 2 1/2 weeks.
In total, EEW SPC will produce 176 monopile foundations that are up to 83 meters long, weigh 1,538 tons and have a diameter up to 9.5 meters. The largest offshore wind project in the USA to date is expected to provide clean, renewable electricity for up to 660,000 homes once construction is complete in 2026.
