Seaway Heavy Lifting (SHL) has awarded Bauer Renewables Ltd. (BRL) a subcontract to design, build, test and operate – the Bauer Dive Drill C40 – to execute relief drilling services for the foundation piles at the Beatrice offshore wind farm.
SHL will install 84 jackets for the foundation of the Beatrice Wind Turbines. Each jacket sits on four piles.
BRL is the UK subsidiary of Bauer Spezialtiefbau GmbH, a German foundation construction specialist. The equipment will be supplied by Bauer Maschinen GmbH, another member of the Bauer Group.
“We are extremely pleased to be involved in such an outstanding project,” says Paul Scheller, managing director of Bauer Renewables Ltd. “The contract marks a further important step for us in the future market of renewable energies and shows that, with our know-how and technology, Bauer is also optimally prepared for challenging foundation projects in the offshore sector.”
