Leading Britisch energy company Centrica has begun offshore works for its 270MW Lincs Offshore Windfarm, 8km off the Lincolnshire coastline east of Skegness.

Main contractor MTHøjgaard installed 75 monopiles with 4900 mm diameter. The foundations will be installed from the MPI Resolution.

Due to the conical top of the foundation the drill bit and stabilizers have retractable arms. This job was executed with the PBA 936 with a drill bit capable of drilling at 4900mm. This PBA 936 is hydraulically driven by a Power pack and works with the reverse air lift drilling principal.
