Dutch dredging contractor Royal Boskalis Westminster has secured the Offshore Balance of Plant contract from Vattenfall for the construction of Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm project.

The wind farm, known as the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre, is located about 3km off the coast of Aberdeen and will feature 11 wind turbines with a capacity of 92.4MW.

Under the €100M contract, Boskalis will be responsible for all offshore elements of the wind farm, with the exception of the wind turbine supply.

The scope of the contract will include the design, procurement, fabrication, supply, transportation and installation of eleven suction bucket jacket foundations and scour protection.

It will also include the procurement, supply, transportation and installation of 66kV inter array and export cables by Boskalis subsidiary VBMS, and the provision of the wind turbine transportation and installation vessel.

The foundations and cables will be transported and installed with own assets including a fallpipe vessel, transport barges, a large floating sheerleg crane and a cable laying vessel, while the wind turbines will be installed by the company’s installation vessel.

The offshore project work is set to begin in September 2017, with the project completion expected in the second quarter of 2018.
