Veja Mate Foundation Installation13/12/2016
Between June 26 2016 and October 27 2016, ITW EP has been working with SeaJacks (UK) on grouting 67 TP’s for the Veja Mate wind farm project. When the last TP was installed on October 27, everyone could look back at a very successful grouting process. The recently introduced DNV GL certified Ducorit® S5R was used for all 67 TP’s and ITW EP is proud to be able to smoothly carry on the Ducorit® S5 legacy.
A total of approximately 1,800 tonnes of Ducorit® S5R was pumped during the installation process. The successful and unproblematic grouting of 67 TP’s once again proved the high quality of our offshore grout products.
The Veja Mate wind farm is placed in the German North Sea, 95 km NW from Borkum Island. According to the plan, the wind farm will be fully operational by the end of 2017. The 67 wind turbines are expected to produce over 1.6 TWh annually – enough electricity for 400.000 German homes.
