First foundation installed at London Array

The first of 177 foundations has been installed at London Array.  The monopile, weighing around 268 tonnes – the equivalent of around 35 double decker buses – was supplied and installed by joint venture company Per Arsleff Bilfinger Berger Ingeniurbeu GmBH using A2SEA’s jack-up barge, Seaworker.  The transition piece was then lifted into place, completing the project’s first full foundation installation.

Foundations will continue to arrive and be installed in a pre-determined patter, each one having been designed and built specifically for its installation location.
