2011 : week 13

Fabrication and assemblage of the steel structures for the Jacket foundations are ongoing at different yards all over the world, (Belgium-Netherlands-United Kingdom-Poland-Germany-South Korea)

Seabed preparations are ongoing by dredging at the locations of the foundations

The Jack Up Platform Buzzard, that will be deployed for the pre-piling operations was mobilised from Antwerp to the Thorntonbank on Tuesday the 29th of March

The pile driving works are about to start in area B of the windfarm. Steel piles of 40 to 45 m will be driven into the seabed by a hammer installation mounted on the jack up platform Buzzard. To assure the correct locations of the piles a template will be lowered onto the seabed

The offshore works are waiting on weather this week and will most probably start on Saturday the 2nd of April 2011
