38 Jacket Foundations delivered by MV BigLift Baffin to Van Oord’s Aeolus on Saint-Brieuc OWF
MV BigLift Baffin has delivered 38 jacket foundations at Saint-Brieuc Offshore Wind Farm (OWF). BigLift Shipping transported the foundations from El Ferrol, Spain to Van Oord’s offshore installation vessel Aeolus in the Bay of Saint-Brieuc for the Saint-Brieuc offshore windfarm, 16.3 kilometres off the coast of Brittany.
Between June 4 and October 5, the vessel executed ten shipments, carrying the jacket foundations on deck; eight trips with four and two with three pieces. The three-legged jackets are 70m high and each weighs approximately 1,100tt.
The jackets were lifted and seafastened on to purpose-built quick-release systems to minimize time during the lifting operation in the field.
