ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands — Van Oord has been contracted by FSRU Wilhelmshaven to construct an FSRU jetty at Wilhelmshaven in Germany.
FSRU Wilhelmshaven is a joint venture between ENGIE and Tree Energy Solution (TES).
Responsibility for the operation of the second FSRU project in Wilhelmshaven lies with the state-owned Deutsche Energy Terminal GmbH (DET).
DET and partners TES and ENGIE are implementing one of the priority projects backed by Germany’s LNG Acceleration law, passed in May 2022. This law aims to plug the supply gap and bolster Germany’s security of supply when it comes to energy.
Van Oord is responsible for the procurement and construction of the FSRU jetty. To expedite the process, monopiles are used as the foundation for the jetty. Van Oord is installing 10 monopiles, including scour protection. The foundations are equipped with platforms, catwalks and furniture. In addition, a trailing suction hopper dredger is being deployed to dredge the berth pocket and turning basin.
