Baltic 2 TPs Built and on Their Way to Bladt Industries
The order for AMBAU to manufacture 41 transition pieces (TPs) for Bladt Industries A/S to be used in the EnBW Baltic 2 wind farm came to an end on 16 October 2014 as the TPs were loaded for shipment.
With a footprint of 13.5 metres, these TPs were the largest components ever to have left the facilities at AMBAU Bremen – and they cannot come any bigger: nudging each one of these pieces out of the factory gates was a precision job in itself.
The connecting pieces between the jacket and tower will finally be put together into complete jacket constructions at Bladt Industries’ assembly hall in the Lindø Industrial Park.
The TPs will be used 32 kilometres north of the Isle of Rügen, where 80 wind turbines will be generating around 1.2 billion kilowatts of power annually after commissioning – enough to supply around 340,000 households with electricity.
