Belgium-based Jan De Nul says it has secured a contract from Vattenfall Vindkraft Kriegers Flak to transport and install 72 large offshore wing turbines for the Kriegers Flak Offshore Wind Farm (OWF) in Denmark.

The Kriegers Flak OWF will be located approximately 9 miles from shore in the Baltic Sea in water depths ranging from 15 and 30 meters.

Jan De Nul already built, towed and installed two large Gravity Based Foundations for the Offshore High Voltage stations of the Kriegers Flak OWF.

The 8.4MW turbine generators will be supplied by Siemens.

Installation works will start in the first quarter of 2021 and will take four months.

“We are proud to have been awarded an offshore WTG installation project of this magnitude”, says Philippe Hutse, Offshore Director at Jan De Nul Group. “It confirms that Jan De Nul is a trustworthy experienced partner in installing large wind farms at sea. Our investments in knowhow and equipment for offshore installation works bear fruit”.
