FairWind installed 9 Enercon MST turbines on the North-Western coast of the Netherlands. The sites were located between the main coastal highway and the famous Afsluitdijk dam, and replaced 16 turbines of another manufacturer.
The project sites were stretched wide in an area popular with tourists with many events taking place during the project`s tenure. This made the regulations evermore strict and the project was often scrutinized by various parties.
The whole area of the project fell under the Wildlife Reserve of Waddenzee. This meant the local environmental authorities had full access and high authority when auditing and supervising the project sites. Their regulations and actions often impacted the actual process and planning of installation and made it more challenging to meet the respective target times.
Hiddum-Houw was at its time the client`s biggest and most important project with Daily Construction meetings often attended by around 20 participants representing various parties involved. This put significant additional pressure on Fairwind`s Project Management and Site Management team to ensure smooth cooperation all throughout.
FairWind successfully completed the project within the scheduled timeframe through highly optimized and dynamically adjusted planning of operations and manpower. Efficient management and efforts of 4 x MST, 2 x WEC and 1 x GRID teams enabled the installation works to be carried out, first of all, safely but also timely and to highest standards of quality.
