First Statoil Hywind SPAR foundation loaded in Fene


Yesterday was held the Load-Out that had been postponed last Friday. This is the first of the five Foundations which Statoil contracted to the Joint Venture formed by WINDAR and NAVANTIA for the Hywind Scotland Pilot Park project in Scotland.

With a weight of more than 3.400 Tons, each of the five foundations manufactured has 91 meters in length and a diameter of 14 meters.

Finally on Monday morning, the structure was loaded from the Fene shipyard where it was waiting for the ship “Albatross”, a semi-submersible vessel that will transport it to its final destination in the Norwegian shipyard of Kvaerner (Stord) once the second SPAR has been loaded and from where they will be transferred to the Scottish OWF.
