Cadeler has signed a contract with Siemens Gamesa for the transportation and installation of 26 Siemens Gamesa 11MW wind turbines at the Aflandshage wind farm developed by Hofor, Greater Copenhagen utility company.
When finished, the wind farm will have a capacity of up to 300MW. The wind farm will be located in Øresund, about 10 kilometers off the south coast of Copenhagen, Denmark. The installation will begin in 2026. Cadeler will use one of its O-class vessels. The planning of the project has taken 11 years, and the location has been carefully selected with consideration to the nearby Natura 2000 areas, coastline, shipping traffic and air traffic. The Danish utility company applied for the wind farm through the open-door scheme. The gravity based foundations will be placed on the seabed surrounded by large stones to create an artificial stone reef that can foster local biodiversity and marine life.
