EEW SPC loads 116th monopile for Hornsea Project 1

Nine months after the first loading of the monopiles for the offshore wind farm Hornsea 
Project 1, all 116 monopiles of the first and second phase have now left the quayside in Rostock.

With the crane ship "SVENJA" of the company SAL Heavylift, six foundations were transported to the base harbour Able Seaton in Great Britain.

It takes less than 24 hours to load six monopiles and all loadouts were carried out without any complications or accidents.

EEW SPC is currently producing a further 58 foundations for the third phase. Another ten shipments are due by November 2018.
