The suction-installed foundations that represent the first stage of construction at the world’s largest offshore wind farm are now on their way to the site at Dogger Bank, 125 kilometres off the UK’s east coast.

The structures, known as bucket foundations, will support two meteorological masts. They were developed by Danish firm Universal Foundation, a Fred. Olsen-related company, through The Carbon Trust’s Offshore Wind Accelerator programme. Dogger Bank is being developed by Forewind Limited, a consortium comprised of international energy companies RWE, SSE, Statkraft and Statoil. The met masts and foundations were fabricated by Fred. Olsen-related companies under an EPCI contract between Forewind and Fred. Olsen United. They are being ferried to the site from the new Harland and Wolff fabrication plant in Belfast by Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s 132 metres jack-up vessel Brave Tern. The met masts themselves are set to be installed towards the end of February.
