Ongoing production of SOFIA Main Access Platforms
We are ongoing with production of Main Access Platforms for Sofia Offshore Wind Farm for Van Oord. Until today we have casted 61 pcs out of 100 pcs platforms in the project. We are outfitting platforms with aluminium railings and accessories, mounting and load testing davit cranes and installing upper ladder and low voltage cables and equipment. In August we have assisted Van Oord with performing an installation mock-up with the use of a monopile wooden dummy. We are also responsible for deliveries of the platforms to Port of Tyne, UK which will take place in 6 trips over the first half of 2024.
At 1.4 gigawatts (GW) Sofia Offshore Wind Farm is one of the largest single offshore wind farms in the world. It will comprise 100 14 megawatt (MW) turbines that will be sited on Dogger Bank in the central North Sea, approximately 195 kilometres from the UK’s north east coast. Now under construction the project is 100% owned by RWE.
Today, the first barge with precast concrete elements to the Per Aarsleff A/S harbour project in Port of Göteborg, Sweden, has sailed away from our facility in Świnoujście.
The barge sailed out with 12pcs heavy L-walls (with average weight of 210 tons), 4 pcs flat 200t beams and 479pcs of small pile caps. The total cargo weight was almost 4300 tons. The installation of big L-walls by floating crane provided by Marine group will start at Masthugskajen next week.
We have delivered the second barge with precast concrete elements to the Per Aarsleff A/S harbour project in Port of Varberg, Sweden.
The barge sailed out with 127pcs heavy deck elements which will be installed by Lodbrok floating crane of Marine Group on the previously installed pile caps. The total cargo weight was almost 9000 tons.
Aarsleff BIZ has finalized the production, outfitting and delivery of 106 concrete work platforms for the Gode Wind 03 and Borkum Riffgrund 03 projects for Ørsted.
The CWPs are now waiting at the BOW Terminal marshalling yard in Eemshaven, ready to be picked up for offshore installation by Jan De Nul.
We would like to thank our suppliers, subcontractors and everyone involved in these projects for their hard and great work. We are proud to be part of being involved in such outstanding projects for green energy.
Last Monday we have delivered 4x quater sections of round floating pontoons of 140 tons each.
The outer diameter of whole ponton/bath after installation will have outer diameter of 34,2m and inner diameter of 21,2m. The elements where delivered by the vessel to Hundested harbour where they will be reloaded to barge and sailed to Fredrikssund where Per Aarsleff A/S is constructing culture and harbour bath.”
Recently we have delivered the first barge transport with concrete elements to the Per Aarsleff A/S harbour project in Varberg, Sweden.
The barge sailed out with well packed 245pcs of 10 ton pile caps and 180pcs of 4 ton concrete slabs. The production started in January 2023 and until end of October 2023 we will deliver two more barges with 223 number of heavy 60-165 tons deck elements
On 21.04.2023 we have loaded 1st out of 11 vessels which will deliver Concrete Working Platforms (CWP) for Ørsted’s Gode Wind 3 and Borkum Riffgrund 3 projects.
Since now on the vessel will be visiting our yard on a regular basis every 9 days and pick up 10 CWPs (9 on the last voyage) each time. We have now produced 80 of the 106 CWPs as of September 2022, giving us the desired rhythm of 3 castings per week.
Empty space received after CWP load-outs will be used for another Concrete Working Platform Project.
On Valentine's Day 2023, we had the pleasure of hosting our Ørsted collegues at our construction site at Aarsleff BIZ in Świnoujscie, Poland.
On this day we reached 53 pcs, the halfway point and another major milestone of casting 106 Concrete Work Platforms for the Gode Wind 3 and Borkum Riffgrund 3 project.
We are on track to complete fabrication and outfitting in June 2023 and load-out of all platforms by the end of July 2023.
We have loaded 3rd of 4 ships with the prefabricated concrete walls which were delivered to Kalundborg, Denmark
Where Per Aarsleff A/S is involved in construction of four new facilities for Novo Nordisk. The last ship with walls is scheduled to be delivered in week 25, 2023.
