Wind power producer Suomen Hyötytuuli Oy has chosen Jan De Nul Group as the main contractor of marine construction for the new Tahkoluoto offshore wind farm in Pori, Finland.
The cable manufacturer Prysmian Finland will supply the undersea cable. Construction of the wind farm will begin in April.
Jan De Nul will be responsible for dredging, seabed construction work, and the installation of foundations and wind turbines. The work will take place over the next two summer seasons.
“Competence, modern technology and references were the key criteria in the selection of the main contractor for marine construction,” said Arto Huhmarkangas, Project Director, Tahkoluoto Offshore at Suomen Hyötytuuli Oy.
Approximately 14 kilometres of a 30-kilovolt undersea cable will be installed on the seabed. The cable is manufactured in Finland by Prysmian Finland.
The Tahkoluoto wind farm will have ten 4 MW turbines that will be taken in use during the autumn of 2017.
