FoundOcean Completes Foundation Grouting at Norther OWF
FoundOcean has completed grouting operations at the Norther offshore wind farm, currently being built in the Belgian North Sea.
The wind farm consists of 44 wind turbines and one Offshore High Voltage Substation (OHVS), and when finalized will have a total installed capacity of 370 MW.
FoundOcean were subcontracted by Van Oord, who had been appointed as the Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation contractor, for the balance of plant by Norther.
FoundOcean’s scope of work consisted of the grouting of all 45 monopile/transition pieces, as well as the grouting of the j-tube cage which was installed on the OHVS.
FoundOcean mobilized a complete grout spread, for the delivery and QA testing of the material, as well as a fleet of interchangeable on- and off-shore material storage silos, which increased the efficiency of the material replenishment operations during the vessel’s scheduled port calls.
