Hollandia Offshore to built Horns Rev C Jacket fabrication contract
Energinet.dk, the Danish power transmission company has appointed Hollandia Offshore with the procurement, fabrication, load out and transport of the Horns Rev C Jacket. The Jacket is to be installed in the Horns Rev 3 Offshore wind farm near the Danish Coast. The scheduled delivery date is April 2016.
The Jacket is designed for a water depth of 16.5 meters and has a total structural weight of around 1600 ton. It is designed as a 4 legged space framed Jacket with leg piles. Stability of the jacket during pile driving and grouting is provided by suction cans placed on each corner.
The project will be executed at the yard of Hollandia Offshore in Krimpen aan de IJssel which is situated at the banks of two major rivers, close to the main port of Rotterdam. Most of the fabrication will take place indoors in one of the recently built fabrication shops.
Nico Noorlander, Managing Director of Hollandia Offshore announced: “We are very pleased to receive this award from Energinet. It strengthens the position of Hollandia Offshore as one of Europe’s leading fabricators for offshore structures for the wind industry. We look forward to working together with Energinet on this project and to develop the relationship further for future projects.”
