Heerema Marine Contractors has won an offshore wind foundation installation contract for EnBW’s He Dreiht offshore wind farm. The work includes the transport and installation of 64 monopiles and transition pieces. During operations, Heerema will use the IHC IQIP double-walled noise mitigation system NMS-10,000 to reduce noise pollution.

The He Dreiht wind farm is located in the German North Sea, 90 km northwest of Borkum and about 110 km west of Heligoland. With a capacity of 900 MW, He Dreiht is one of the largest planned offshore wind power projects in Europe and is scheduled to go into operation in 2025. It is EnBW’s first subsidy-free offshore windpark.
