UAE-based engineering services provider Lamprell has secured a $225M contract from ScottishPower Renewables for the fabrication of multiple jackets and piles for the East Anglia One Offshore Wind Farm.
The project, located in the UK waters of the southern North Sea, will include 102 turbines, each with a capacity of 7MW. The wind farm is anticipated to generate power for more than 500,000 homes annually.
Under the contract, Lamprell will be responsible for the procurement, fabrication and supply of 60 foundations — comprising jackets and piles — to ScottishPower Renewables who will then install the jackets foundation structures to facilitate later installation of the wind turbine generators offshore.
Harland and Wolff will perform jacket assembly works for Lamprell at their modern facilities in Belfast prior to final delivery to ScottishPower Renewables.
Lamprell CEO Christopher McDonald said: "We are proud to be part of this flagship project developed in the North Sea. This is a significant award for Lamprell and represents a big step forward in servicing the fast growing renewables segment.
"This project gives us an opportunity to demonstrate how our fabrication skills are once again transferrable to other areas of the energy industry and beyond our traditional sweet spot in the oil & gas sector."
Fabrication work is set to commence in March 2017, with deliveries to be made between March and October 2018.
