Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm

DSC01553

Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis) has contracted SPT Offshore for the detailed design and installation of 33 suction pile foundations for the foundation of eleven (11) suction bucket jackets for the Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm, a Vattenfall project. The jackets support the world’s largest 8.4MW Vestas wind turbines. Installation is planned later this year in Q3 and Q4.

The use of suction bucket jacket foundations in conjunction with the very large wind turbines and the use of high capacity 66kV power cables makes this project unique.
