Detail design of the substructure and topside of the substation RIFFGAT
KCI completed the engineering for German Offshore wind project Riffgat in March 2013. The Riffgat (also known as OWP Riffgat) is an offshore wind farm 15 kilometers (9.3 mi) to the north-west of the German island of Borkum and north of the shipping channel in the southern North Sea. The wind turbines are built across an area of 6 square kilometers.
In April 2010, KCI was awarded the engineering for structural, utility systems and 3D interfacing design for both the jacket and the topside. Just before sail away in February 2013, KCI engineers carried out a final inspection of the topside at Hollandia’s yard. The topside set sail to the German part of the North Sea where it was successfully hooked up to the jacket foundation, also developed by KCI.
