To reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the British government has set an ambitious target: by 2020, 15% of all energy must be obtained from renewable sources. After completion in 2017, the Burbo Bank Extension offshore wind park will be making a valuable contribution towards achieving this aim by supplying 180,000 households with green energy. Van Oord’s Svanen played a crucial role in the construction of the offshore wind park. The heavy lift vessel, with a lifting capacity of 8,700 tonnes, installed 32 monopiles and transition pieces during the summer of 2016.
