EEW SPC delivers monopiles for wind farm Fryslân

Largest wind farm in domestic waters

Rostock-based EEW Special Pipe Constructions has received an order from the Dutch company Van Oord NV for the production of 89 monopiles for the 382.7 MW offshore wind farm Fryslân. In total EEW SPC will process over 19,000 tons of steel for this order between January 2020 and September 2020.

The special feature of this wind farm, which will be erected 6 kilometers off the Frisian coast in the Ijsselmeer, is that after completion it will be the world’s largest wind farm in domestic waters.

Wind farm Fryslân is scheduled to be operational by 2021 and will then supply more than 500,000 households with electricity.
