Bladt prepares Beatrice foundations
Bladt Industries has successfully completed the first lifting operation of the external platform on the top jacket 3D structure for the first out of 30 jacket foundations for Beatrice Offshore Windfarm, to be built in northern Scotland.
Bladt Industries will supply 30 four-legged jacket foundations to the wind farm. The foundations will reach an altitude of up to about 70 meters and weighs up to approximately 900 tons - making them considerably larger than previous jacket designs manufactured at Lindoe by Bladt Industries.
Following the Financial Close on 23 May 2016, Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Ltd, owned by SSE (40%), Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) (35%) and Red Rock Power Limited (25%), has received a green light for construction of the wind farm.
The project will be one of the largest private investments ever made in Scottish infrastructure. The offshore wind farm is 588 MW and will consist of 84 units of Siemens SWT-7.0-154 offshore wind turbines.
