Belgium,Denmark : JAN DE NUL floated off and installed second gravity-base foundation.

At Vattenfall's 600MW Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm off the coast of Denmark, Jan De Nul has floated off and established the second gravity-base foundation for the offshore substations.

Heavy-lift vessel Rambiz was utilized in combination with a ballast module to establish the 10,000-tonne foundation onto the seabed.

Last weekend, the first gravity-base foundation, weighing 8000 tonnes, was set up.

The two of the foundations have been set in place on a gravel bedding layer arranged by Jan De Nuls multipurpose vessel Adhmar de Saint-Venant that would now start ballasting and scour protection.

Kriegers Flak that would have Siemens Gamesa turbines, is expected to go live by 2022.
