G&G International to construct Riffgat offshore wind farm

German Groups EWE and ENOVA have placed an order with G&G International in Willebroek worth €55m for the construction of Riffgat, a new offshore wind farm close to German Borkum.

G&G International will deliver 30 large foundation structures for offshore wind turbines between May and July 2012.

It is the largest order that the engineering and construction company has ever received and is claimed to represent the pressure vessel manufacturer’s breakthrough into the renewable energy market.

The project will provide at least 25 additional jobs and the company is setting its sights on further growth.
