LDD successfully collaborated with Acteon sister companies and Offshore WindForce to provide a complete foundation solution. This included provision of the first LDD-designed subsea pre-piling template for offshore wind.
LDD has successfully collaborated with sister companies UTEC and MENCK to deliver a total foundation solution, including a new build subsea Pre-Piling Template (PPT), to Offshore WindForce WIK (OWF). OWF is contracted by Iberdrola Renewables Offshore Deutschland GmbH to transport and install 70 turbine foundations at the Wikinger offshore windfarm in the German sector of the Baltic Sea.
LDD’s PPT is being used to pre-install foundation piles into the seabed, prior to the placement and grouting of the four-legged jacket foundation structures by means of the Boskalis vessel named Giant 7. The contract is based on a collaborative approach, and utilises the strengths and experience of the project team from OWF and LDD to meet the challenging schedule and installation tolerance requirements on the project.
LDD’s PPT is currently onsite, so a full story on this project will follow soon after completion.
