Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 4/1/2021, Location: Europe

Following the announcement that RWE has reached a financial investment decision for Sofia Offshore Wind Farm, Van Oord is pleased to confirm that it has been contracted for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of the monopile foundations and array cables for this project. The 1.4 GW Sofia Offshore Wind Farm is one of the world’s largest offshore wind projects.

Sofia is sited on Dogger Bank in the central North Sea, 195 kilometres from the North East coast of the UK. Through its UK branch MPI Offshore, Van Oord will create a logistics hub to deliver the comprehensive scope of work. Offshore installation vessel Aeolus will be deployed to install the 100 extended monopile foundations without transition pieces. The 350 kilometres of array cables will be installed by cable-laying vessel Nexus. Van Oord will sub-contract the fabrication of the foundations and array cables.

'RWE and Van Oord know each other well having worked together on four UK projects prior to the signing of this most recent EPCI contract for foundations and array cables. At 1.4GW, Sofia is our largest and most ambitious offshore wind development to date. We look forward to leveraging our vast experience and learnings as we progress into the construction of this flagship project, and to realising its potential in terms of contributing to the UK’s net zero energy ambitions.' — Sven Utermöhlen, Chief Operating Officer Wind Offshore Global of RWE Renewables
