RWE Renewables
Date: 2020-12-02
RWE Renewables reports it has contracted with DEME Offshore for the transport and installation of a new steel "collared monopole" foundation technology at its 342-MW Kaskasi offshore wind farm in the German North Sea.

The "collared monopile" design is based on an RWE patent and will provide additional support for lateral loading, increase bearing capacity and improve the structural integrity of the entire foundation.

The Kaskasi offshore wind farm, which will incorporate 38, 9-MW wind turbines mounted on monopile foundations, is expected to begin construction in Q3, 2021, and will generate sufficient energy for more than 400,000 homes when fully operational in 2022.
