Bladt gets contract for foundations
Bladt Industries, headquartered in Aalborg, have signed a contract for building 35 transition pieces for the Borssele 1 & 2 Offshore Wind Farm in the Netherlands. The production of the transition pieces that are part of the foundation will begin in the near future. The transitions are manufactured in Denmark.
"We have worked closely with Ørsted on creating foundations and transformer stations for close to 10 years. This is a clear advantage for both companies. We know Ørsted's workflows, and they know what Bladt Industries stands for when it comes to quality and flexibility, "says Vice President of Commercial & Sales in Bladt Industries, Lars Bender.
Ørsted is in charge of the Borssele 1 & 2 Offshore Wind Farm project. The wind farms total capacity is 752 MW.
The offshore wind farm will be placed in the Dutch part of the North Sea approximately 23 kilometres off the coast. It is expected to be operating in 2020 and will supply electricity for almost a million Dutch houses.
