Seafox 5 Finishes DanTysk Foundation Installation (Germany)
As announced on December 13, all of the 80 foundations for the DanTysk offshore wind farm are now installed.
This was achieved by using the largest self-propelled installation jack-up vessel of the Workfox fleet, the Seafox 5. The vessel successfully completed the installation of 80 monopiles and transition pieces for the DanTysk offshore wind farm, located in the German North Sea, 70 kilometres west of the island Sylt.
The main contractor for the foundations of this windfarm is Aarsleff Billfinger Berger Joint Venture (ABJV). The windfarm is owned by DanTysk Offshore Wind GmbH (DTOW).
Kees Jan Cordia, Managing Director of Workfox said: “The Seafox 5 has demonstrated to perform as initially designed without exceeding any risk and/or safety barriers due to the reliability of our offshore crew and the competency of our proven operational expertise as a company. In addition we would like to thank our client Aarsleff Billfinger Berger Joint Venture (ABJV) for the confidence and mature attitude in finalizing complex projects such as these.”
The Seafox 5 will arrive shortly in Esbjerg (Denmark) for demobilization and mobilization for her next assignment straight thereafter.
