The Gemini project is the construction of two offshore wind farms, the ZeeEnergie and Buitengaats, in the Netherlands. Scaldis was awarded the transportation and installation of both offshore high voltage substations.

The jackets were fabricated and loaded onto a barge in Flushing and the topsides were transported from Hoboken to the field. Scaldis was responsible for transportation of the barges, the installation of the jackets, the piling and grouting works and the installation of the topsides.

Thanks to comprehensive preparation, a good cooperation with the clients and an experienced crew and sub-contractors, the project was completed as planned and on time.
