During the summer of 2011 Sarens performed the upending operation of the steel jackets for Thornton Bank II and III offshore wind farm. The jackets of 600t heavy and 55,5m high were assembled horizontally. The main crane CC8800-1 and tail crane LR1600/2 lifted the jackets to bring them to a vertical position. After this they were ready for transport with barges and the offshore installation in the North Sea for the Thornton II & III offshore wind farm. On these jackets a total of 48 Repower 6MW windturbines will be installed in 2012 and 2013. Smulders Foundation has built these structures for client Dredging International for installation at the CPO Thorntonbank wind farm in Belgium.
