Suomen Hyötytuuli Oy built the offshore wind farm in Tahkoluoto, Pori, which is the world’s first offshore wind farm designed especially for icy conditions. The offshore wind farm consists of 10 turbines, and VRT Finland was supporting the installation by utilising multibeam sonar inspections and licensed inspectors to verify baseline data. The finalisation of the project by installing the erosion protection of the foundations and the sea cable was also ensured by VRT’s inspections.
VRT assists the owners and managers of underwater structures in all phases of the construction project from planning to project management and maintenance. Cooperating with Jyväskylä Energy Group before their new pipeline installations, VRT collects 3D data and assists Jyväskylä Energia Group to utilise it wisely in building and maintenance.
