All 90 foundations for the 317MW Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm, located off the UK’s Norfolk coast, are now in position and awaiting the arrival of the remainder of the wind farm’s 88 turbines.

The 183 meter crane vessel ‘Oleg Strashnov’ completed the installation of the final foundation on Sunday (August 21) three weeks ahead of schedule. The ‘Oleg Strashnov’, with its crew of 150 people, started work on the 35 km2 site in May with the installation of the two 1000 tonne offshore substations. The vessel has continued with foundation installation work since then. Each foundation, comprising a tubular steel monopole topped with a yellow-painted transition piece, was designed and fabricated specifically for its specific location on the site. The jack-up barge ‘GMS Endeavour’ will continue to install the remainder of the wind turbines with the expected completion date in mid 2012.
