For the German offshore wind project Global Tech I Sarens supplied all cranes and SPMT's for the construction and transport of wind turbine foundations in Vlissingen. The pictures show a tripod foundation of 900t  which will support Areva turbines in water  depths of 40m. Each turbine produces 5 MW of electricity. Production starts at a wind speed of 14 km/h and the peak power output of 5 megawatts will be reached at 45 km/h. During severe storms the turbine switches  off for safety at 90 km/h.
