EEW SPC Secures Deutsche Bucht Foundations Contract

Dutch marine contractor Van Oord has assigned the Rostock-based EEW Special Pipe Constructions GmbH to manufacture and deliver 31 monopiles for the 252MW Deutsche Bucht (DeBu) offshore wind farm.

The 31 monopiles will be in the XL range where EEW SPC will process more than 35,000 tons of steel in total.

The foundations will be manufactured in Rostock between November 2017 and May 2018 so that offshore installation work can commence as planned at the beginning of September 2018.

The offshore wind farm is located approximately 95km west of the island Borkum and will be realized by the Canadian energy company Northland Power. The commissioning is scheduled for the end of 2019.

“We are extremely pleased to be processing operations together with Van Oord on our third large project after Belwind and Gemini. Van Oord is a strategically important partner for us and the long-standing good relationship acknowledges our successful cooperation,” said Michael Hof, COO/Managing Director EEW SPC.
