Equipment returns following successful deployment to the Kaskasi II wind farm

News published on 10 June 2022

After installing foundations at the Kaskasi II wind farm, our offshore equipment returned to our Sliedrecht yard in The Netherlands this week. IQIP has been supporting DEME and RWE with the foundation installation of 39 wind turbines at the new Kaskasi II wind farm, in the North Sea, off the coast of Germany.

Bas Nekeman, DEME’s Offshore Business Unit Director Renewables, said in a recent DEME press release, “In a very short time, a great team comprising RWE, DEME, IQIP and Fred Olsen professionals joined forces to prepare and launch the installation capabilities required.”

IQIP mobilised a range of equipment for the project on a short notice, including a S-3000 hammer spread with Maxine and a Guiding Tool, along with a Flanged Pile Upending Tool 1200t, which were used on the project with the support of IQIP’s Service Engineers. The equipment delivers fast and efficient lifting operations for a rapid and environmentally-conscious foundation installation, as well as remote operating functionality for increased safety on-board.

The wind turbines at the Kaskasi II wind farm, installed on monopile foundations and featuring recyclable blades, are expected to generate enough green power to supply 400,000 homes a year. The 342-megawatt wind farm will have an operational life of at least 25 years and will make a valuable contribution to Germany’s long term offshore wind energy capacity goals.

IQIP is proud of our collaboration with the professionals from Deme, RWE and Fred Olsen to deliver this project.
