Phases of construction
The construction of an offshore wind farm consists of multiple phases:
- Components are produced in different places in Europe;
- These components are subsequently transported to Vlissingen – (mostly) over water;
- Vlissingen is the marshalling harbour, where the pre-assembly takes place;
- From the Maasvlakte in Rotterdam the Van Oord vessels will work on installing the monopiles;
- Then the windturbines will be place on top of the monopiles.
