Jan De Nul have officially started the transport and installation contract for the construction of Ørsted’s 242 MW Gode Wind 3 and 900 MW Borkum Riffgrund 3 offshore wind farms in Germany.

The scope for the work includes the transport and installation of 106 wind turbine monopile foundations and one offshore substation, which includes the associated topside.

Subcontractor Wagenborg has deployed its Wagenborg Barge 8 for the transport of the monopile foundations from Steelwind's yard in Germany to marshalling harbour Eemshaven in the Netherlands.

During summer of this year, Jan De Nul's brand-new Heavy Lift Vessel Les Alizés will arrive on site and install the first monopile foundation offshore. This will be the first job for the vessel. Les Alizéswas delivered by the CHMI Shipyard in China in January 2023 and is currently sailing to Eemshaven.

Both the 242 MW Gode Wind 3 and the 900 MW Borkum Riffgrund 3 wind farms will use 11 MW Siemens Gamesa turbines and are located in the German North Sea. The Borkum Riffgrund 3 more particularly will be located adjacent to Ørsted's existing offshore wind farms Borkum Riffgrund 1 and Borkum Riffgrund 2. Gode Wind 3 will be close to Ørsted's Gode Wind 1 and 2.
