A2SEA’s purpose-built offshore installation vessel Sea Challenger will be deployed to install the 102 Siemens 7MW turbines from the load out port in Great Yarmouth.
The wind farm is located approximately 45 kilometres off the Suffolk Coast in the southern North Sea. East Anglia ONE is one of the Round three projects in the UK and the total capacity of the wind farm is 714MW. The wind farm is owned by ScottishPower Renewables and is expected to be fully commissioned in early 2020.
East Anglia One is owned by ScottishPower Renewables, a unit of Spanish utility Iberdrola. When fully commissioned in early 2020, the wind farm will provide green energy for well over 500,000 homes in the UK.
”We have formerly worked with ScottishPower Renewables and Siemens Wind Power on West of Duddon Sands OWF, and I am confident that by providing our competent and experienced crew both onshore and offshore will ensure a project delivered both on time, on budget and most importantly in a safe manner,” says A2SEA chief executive Jens Frederik Hansen.
A2SEA will work with a range of UK suppliers for the mobilisation of Sea Challenger, for sea fastening etc. , in order to benefit UK suppliers and optimise the share of local content.
