Walney 3 substationThe Engie Fabricom and Iemants consortium chosen by Dong Energy to build the Walney 3 and 4 offshore substations, reports that Walney 3 set out from the ENGIE Fabricom yard in Hoboken bound for the wind farm in the Irish Sea.

Various tugboats surrounded the barge and at high tide, the mooring lines were removed and the barge could sail away. With a height of 35 metres and weighing 2,900 tonnes, this is the second substation to leave the site this month. The substation was accompanied by its 48-metre-high jacket foundation that has been assembled on the Iemants site in Vlissingen in the Netherlands, the jacket was transported to Hoboken late February. Earlier this month, the Race Bank 1 substation also left Belgium, and it will be followed by Walney 4 later in the month.
