Enersense is participating in Suomen Hyötytuuli's Front End Engineering Design (FEED) for Tahkoluoto offshore wind farm foundations. Hyötytuuli is developing an extension to the Tahkoluoto offshore wind farm on the west coast of Finland, where the wind turbines will be built in deeper waters than ever before in Finland.
The FEED is due to be completed in November, and the concept selection will be done in December 2023. The foundations of the first turbines in the Tahkoluoto extension project will be built at 40 and 25 metres of water depth. They will be designed to withstand the loads of the 15+ megawatt turbines and the harsh icy conditions of the Baltic Sea. Enersense Offshore’s concrete and steel hybrid foundation concept has been selected for the FEED along with two other foundation concepts. The Tahkoluoto extension project consists of forty wind turbines generating over 15 megawatts. The water and construction permits are expected to be finalised this autumn. The project has received funding from the EU’s NextGenerationEU.
