Iberdrola and Van Oord have signed a contract for the transportation and installation of Baltic Eagle’s monopile foundations, as well as the supply, transportation and installation of the inter-array cables.
With a production capacity of 476MW Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm will supply renewable energy to 475,000 households. It is scheduled to be fully operational by the end of 2024. For the installation of the 50 foundations, Van Oord is deploying its 8,000-ton heavy lift installation vessel Svanen. The offshore works for the Baltic Eagle project will start in 2023. Van Oord’s cable laying vessel Nexus and trencher Dig-It will be deployed for the inter-array cable laying.
