EEW gets Gemini monopile order

Germany’s EEW Special Pipe Constructions will deliver 75 monopiles for the 600MW Gemini wind farm being developed by Typhoon Offshore off the Netherlands.

Under a contract with contractor Van Oord, EEW will begin fabricating the 850-tonne, seven-metre-diameter monopiles next May.

Gemini, located 85km north of the island of Schiermonnikoog in the Dutch North Sea, is expected online by 2016.
