The first foundation for Vattenfall’s Kriegers Flak Offshore Wind Farm, 15-40 kilometres off the coast of Denmark, has been placed in the sea bed of the Baltic Sea. Installation of the 72 foundations is expected to run into the autumn this year with installation of turbines starting in 2021.
During pile driving, a double curtain of bubbles will be deployed around each foundation to mitigate noise as a safeguard for marine mammals. The monopile foundations have been manufactured by EEW-SPC in Rostock. On top of the foundations, transition pieces from Bladt Industries will be mounted to carry the 8.4MW Siemens Gamesa turbines. The foundations will be transported and installed by Van Oord.
