On behalf of marine contractor Aarsleff, SMIT was involved in the construction of the new Sprogø Offshore Windfarm, west of Copenhagen.

The project called for the participation of SMIT’s semi-submersible transportation barge Giant 4. The 24,000 tons capacity barge was deployed for the fabrication and transport of the turbine foundations for the Sprogø windfarm. Giant 4 acted as a floating construction platform for the concrete foundations at the Polish yard of Swinjousci. A total of eight elements were required and the gravity bases had weights of up to 1,900 tons.

On completion of fabrication, Giant 4 departed to site, supported by SMIT tugs. On arrival, the barge ballasted down in preparation of the discharge of the elements on-scene.

SMIT’s scope of work also included the engineering of a robust moorings solution to ready the barge to withstand sustained periods of poor weather, and various marine support services on site.
