The Blyth Offshore Demonstrator Wind Farm Project is a pioneering wind farm development located off the Northumberland Coast close to the Port of Blyth. Concrete gravity based foundations (GBFs) form part of the project and are being installed using a new “float and submerge” method – the first time this method has been used for offshore wind turbines.
Wholly owned by EDF Energies Nouvelles, the Blyth Offshore Demonstrator Wind Farm Project has been built by EDF Renewables, a UK joint venture between EDF Energies Nouvelles and EDF Energy. The Wind Farm will be EDF Renewables’ second offshore Wind Farm following the Teesside Wind Farm off the North East coast at Redcar.
Creative Streak Design, following a recommendation, were brought into the project with a view to creating and developing a very high quality book and slipcase that documented the BODL Project from start to finish. Working closely with Marcel Sunier of EDF Renewables (the Project Director), Andrew Porter (BMS Coordinator) and Chris Henderson (Project photographer) Creative Streak Design produced an initial design concept that incorporated all of the required content outlined in briefing meetings. The final book and slip case were printed to a high standard finish including a metallic block foiling, spot silver ink and a soft touch matt lamination, thus that echoed the the pioneering BODL Project.
