Milestone project in icy waters
Blue Water is assisting with special equipment for offshore wind project in Finland
The Tahkoluoto Offshore Wind Farm in Finland is being constructed with the help of Blue Water’s machinery and special equipment.
Three reach stackers with capacity to lift from 65 to 100 tons, one truck and a specially designed root end adaptor with dolly to transport the 63-metre blades have been delivered to Mäntyluoto port in Pori. The specially designed equipment has been designed by Blue Water’s own engineering department to ensure a smooth, safe and efficient handling of the blades at the quay and storage area. Also, it is a cost-effective solution as the client can avoid hiring extra workers to move the blades.
One of Blue Water’s own Project Managers is on site and acts as the connecting link between Suomen Hyötytuuli Oy, the company developing the wind farm, and Siemens. During the next four months, Blue Water will also provide terminal assistants.
Tahkoluoto Offshore Wind Farm is constructed off the coast of the Finnish port of Pori. It is the first offshore wind farm designed for icy conditions and consists of ten 4.2 MW turbines.
