Van Oords heavy lift installation vessel Svanen installing first monopile at Baltic Eafle offshore wind farmOver the past weekend, Iberdrola successfully installed the first foundation for the Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm on the seabed. Following the installation of the offshore substation (OSS) in February 2023, the company is now entering the core stage of the Baltic Eagle construction phase.
Currently, Van Oord's heavy-lift installation vessel Svanen is working off the island of Rügen in the offshore wind farm, which is located 30 kilometers northeast of the German island of Rügen and covers a 40 square kilometer area. On the basis of a special feeder concept, the monopiles of the Rostock-based company EEW SPC are towed from the Port of Rostock out to the construction site and positioned upright by the gripper. The steel piles with a diameter of between 8.75 and 9 meters and a length of between 75 and 90 are then driven into the seabed.

Transportation of the transition pieces to the storage site in the Port of Mukran also began at the beginning of March. These transition pieces connect the monopile with the wind turbine and will be deployed during the second quarter of 2023. The laying of the inter-array cables is then planned for later in 2023. The farm is scheduled to be fully operational by the end of 2024.
