Sarens, the Belgian heavy lifting specialist, has transported a 580t pile template in Wallsend, Newcastle Upon Tyne, United Kingdom. The work was done on behalf of a client Van Oord, who is responsible for installing 102 three-legged jacked foundations for the Scottish Power Renewables (part of the Ibedrola Group), which is building the East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm in the North Sea. The project equipment included 3×6 axle lines of self-propelled modular transporter, a 400t and a 220t mobile crane and 21m bridge beams (converted to link spans). Most equipment arrived from the UK, while the link spans were delivered from the Netherlands to the UK via the client’s barge. It took one day to set up all of the equipment and prepare it for the operation.
