Karehamn Offshore Windfarm
Amrumbank / Karehamn / Humber Gateway Offshore Wind Farm Projects
Fabrication of Commonality Grillages
MCC were awarded the contract to fabricate and install four (4) commonality grillages for the jack-up vessel MPI Discovery. The grillages were designed with multiple Pitch Circle Diameters (PCDs) to allow installation of;
Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs) for Karehamn Offshore Wind Farm; and Foundations for Humber Gateway Offshore Wind Farm; and WTGs for Amrumbank Offshore Wind Farm, each commonality grillage measures 12 metres x 10 metres and weighs 70 tonnes.
Achievement of the onerous fabrication tolerances required was significantly aided by the use of digital surveying technology.
Completion of MCC’s scope of works was accomplished ahead of programme.
The site construction phase also included the installation of sixteen (16) shear strakes, installation of (10) tonnes of additional underdeck strengthening to the vessel and fabrication and installation of an Auxiliary Crane Boom Rest.
Amrumbank West is a 288MW offshore wind farm being developed in the North Sea, Germany. It is located 35 kilometres north of Helgoland and 18 kilometres south-west of the Amrum Bank sandbank.
The €1bn (US$1.3bn) project is being developed by E.ON Climate & Renewables. It is E.ON´s first commercial wind project in Germany and will produce 720GWh of clean energy per annum, which will be enough to power about 400,000 households.
