Teufelberger-Redaelli Plays its Part in the Energy Transition

MPI Offshore UK, a company in the Van Oord Group, specialises in the installation of offshore wind turbines. With the support of Teufelberger-Redaelli high-performance wire ropes, MPI Offshore UK has completed the installation of the first of 10 turbines at Beleolico, the first offshore wind farm in Italy and the Mediterranean, built off the coast of Taranto in Apulia.

The operation is being undertaken by the MPI Resolution jack-up vessel, the historic ship, which was the first ship in the world designed for the most effective, efficient and sustainable installation of offshore wind turbines. This is exactly where Teufelberger-Redaelli comes into the picture.

The MPI Resolution uses an 800 tonne Huisman crane, which is fully equipped with our high-strength Flexpack and Pack9P ropes, both recommended for heavy applications. The wind farm is located over approximately 131,000 m² of water and in a state-owned area of 455 m2, which was assigned by the Taranto port authority to MPI Offshore UK for a period of 30 years.

The site will generate approximately 30 MW of total power and an estimated production of 55,600 MWh/year. This is equivalent to the energy needs of 18,500 households. In summary, the high-performance cable from Teufelberger-Redaelli is being used to support the energy revolution.
