Bladt rolls out first Kaskasi steel
Bladt Industries has rolled out the first cans of the transition pieces and monopiles destined for the Kaskasi offshore wind project in Germany.
The Danish company will deliver 39 monopiles, 38 transition pieces for the turbines and one specially designed transition piece for the offshore substation.
Work will continue until Q3 2021, when the final foundation is scheduled to leave Bladt’s Aalborg site for installation.
Kaskasi will comprise 38 Siemens Gamesa SG 8.0-167 DD Flex turbines, each of which will have a capacity of close to 9 MW, a rotor diameter of 167m, and a total height of 191m.
Offshore construction is expected to begin in autumn 2021 some 35km north of the island of Heligoland, with project commissioning expected in summer 2022.
