Jackets for wind turbines arrive at Industry Harbour

Three barges with wind turbine foundations docked at CMP en route for erection in the Baltic Sea

It was hard to ignore the two large barges, Wismar and Bremen, which arrived at quays m0812 and m0814 in Malmö’s Industry Harbour on 3 and 4 December respectively. Each of the 90 meter long barges was loaded with three tall steel structures from Bladt Industries in Lindø Industrial Estate on Fyn.

”We are awaiting one more barge in the next week,” says harbour master Søren Andersen, CMP.

”I am expecting them to be here for a month. They come from Lindø, and I think they were manufactured somewhat faster than they can be erected. It largely depends on the weather in the Baltic Sea, when they are put in place.”

The steel constructions are en route to be erected as jacket foundations for the wind turbines in the Baltic 2 wind farm, which is under construction in the Baltic Sea, at Krigers Flak north of Stralsund. The developer is Energie Baden-Württemberg AG.

Bladt Industries will produce a total of 41 jackets and 39 monopile foundations for the 80 wind turbines. The 41 jackets will be used where the water is over 35 metres deep.

The first wind turbine in Baltic 2 was erected on its foundation on 27 August last year.
