Danish steel contractor Bladt Industries A/S has completed the first 3-D offshore jacket foundation structure as part of the 350-MW Wikinger wind project in the German Baltic Sea.
This was achieved as Bladt successfully installed the first upper A-frame, the company announced in a brief statement on Friday.
The offshore wind project is developed by Spanish energy group Iberdrola SA (BME:IBE). Adwen, a 50/50 offshore wind joint venture between French group Areva SA (EPA:AREVA) and Spain’s Gamesa (MCE:GAM), previously received a contract to supply the wind turbines, which in turn will be transported and erected by Fred.
