Bladt Industries sign significant offshore wind contract with Vattenfall
Vattenfall awarded Bladt Industries a contract for the fabrication of 41 transition pieces (TP) for the Vesterhav project
The Danish renewable energy company Bladt Industries has announced winning the contract to deliver Transition Pieces (TP) for the two Danish offshore wind farms, Vesterhav Syd and Vesterhav Nord.
Vattenfall awarded Bladt Industries a contract for the fabrication of 41 transition pieces (TP) for the Vesterhav project, 21 units for Vesterhav Nord and 20 units for Vesterhav Syd.
The fabrication is planned to start in the spring of 2022, with delivery planned for early 2023. Each TP will have a height of 22,5 meters and a weight of approximately 260 tons.
The fabrication of the TP’s will take place at Bladt Industries’ facilities in Aalborg, Denmark.
The Vesterhav Syd and Nord offshore wind farms will consist of 41 wind turbine generators with a total capacity of 350 MW (180 MW on Nord and 170 MW on Syd). The offshore wind farms will both be located 10 km off the West coast of Jutland near Thyborøn (Nord) and Søndervig (Syd) in water depths of approximately 20 meters. The wind farms will produce enough electricity to supply 350,000 Danish homes in total.
Anders Søe-Jensen, CEO, Bladt Industries, says:
“We are excited to be supplying TP’s for a Danish windfarm and super proud to, again be working with one of Europe's largest energy companies and experienced offshore developers.”
“Vattenfall is just like Bladt interested in taking a social responsibility and this project will ensure an education platform for a number of our apprentices that will participate in the manufacturing of the transition pieces.”
