Wind power producer Suomen Hyötytuuli Oy has chosen Jan De Nul as the main contractor of marine construction for the new offshore wind farm in Pori, Finland. Jan De Nul will be responsible for dredging, seabed preparation work, and the installation of foundations and wind turbines. The work will take place over the next two summer seasons and a four-legged jack-up vessel more than 100 metres long will be used for the installation of the wind turbines. Approximately 14 kilometres of a 30-kilovolt undersea cable will be installed on the seabed. The cable is manufactured in Finland by Prysmian Finland. The world’s first offshore wind farm designed for icy conditions will have ten 4MW turbines that will be taken in use during the autumn of 2017.
