Heerema Marine Contractors bags major Baltyk II and III Transport & Installation order

Heerema Marine Contractors has received a large transport and installation order for the Baltyk II and Baltyk III offshore wind farms that are being developed in the Polish section of the Baltic Sea.

The Baltyk II and Baltyk III projects are approximately 27 km and 40 km from the port of Leba and are each being developed by a joint venture project owned 50% by Equinor and 50% by Polenergia. The wind farms will have a total installed capacity of 1440 MW.

Transport & Installation scope

The scope of the contracts includes the transportation and installation of 100 monopiles and transition pieces. The monopiles are fabricated by Sif Group in the Netherlands while the a joint venture of Sif and Smulders Projects Belgium will be responsible for the fabrication of the Transition Pieces.

Additionally, Heerema will handle the transportation and installation of offshore substation jackets and topsides.

Heerema will utilize its heavy lift vessel, Thialf, for these critical operations. The Thialf’s advanced capabilities and motion compensated gripper frame make it ideally suited for the complex and demanding tasks associated with these large-scale offshore wind projects.
