    Eiffage wins two major offshore wind contracts off the German coast

    May 17, 2022 - ENP Newswire


      Eiffage, through Smulders (a Belgian subsidiary of Eiffage Metal), has been awarded two contracts by Orsted, the world leader in offshore wind energy, to manufacture the secondary steel elements for the single-pile foundations of the Gode Wind 3 and Borkum Riffgrund 3 offshore wind farms in Germany. Smulders will supply the secondary structures for the foundations of the 23 wind turbines and the offshore substation for Gode Wind 3, as well as the foundations for the Borkum Riffgrund 3 offshore wind farm's 83 wind turbines. Smulders will supply, among other things, the boat landings, external ladders, suspended internal cages and anode cages protecting from corrosion.

      The majority of the equipment will be manufactured in Smulders' Polish factory before being transported to the coast where it will be assembled and the electrical system installed. Production will start in May 2022 and will continue until the first quarter of 2023. The Borkum Riffgrund 3 offshore wind farm, located in the German North Sea, will have a total capacity of 913 MW and is expected to be commissioned in 2025. Gode Wind 3, also located off the German coast, will have a total capacity of 253 MW and is expected to be commissioned in 2024. When completed, these wind farms will produce electricity equivalent to the consumption of around 1.2 million households in Germany each year.

      These two new contracts demonstrate Orsted's confidence in Smulders and their cooperation for the supply of innovative secondary steel elements for the development of TP-less foundation technology.
