The project's concrete gravity based foundations (GBFs) and are being installed using a new "float and submerge" method -- the first time this method has been used for offshore wind turbines. Designed and built by Royal BAM Group in the Neptune dry dock on the River Tyne, the 15,000 tonne GBFs are being floated into position at sea and submerged onto the seabed to provide the support structures that act as the foundations for the installation of the wind turbines.
The Blyth Offshore Demonstrator project will utilize five MHI Vestas V164 , 8.3 MW turbines and is being built by EDF Energy Renewables, a 50-50 UK joint venture between EDF Energies Nouvelles and EDF Energy.
