Spanish-based companies Navantia and Windar have won a €120M contract from Iberdrola to supply the foundations for the East Anglia One wind turbines off the coast of the UK.
Navantia will produce 34 jackets at its shipyard in Fene, while Windar will forge the jacket piles at its facilities in Avilés.
The project — to have an installed capacity of 714MW — is being developed off the coast of East Anglia, UK, in the North Sea.
The power generated by the wind farm will be sufficient to supply clean energy to more than 500,000 average UK homes.
Iberdrola’s chairman Ignacio Galán said: “Thanks to the quality of the works carried out for our offshore wind farm in Germany and the know-how and expertise acquired in the fabrication of metal structures — both at Fene and Puerto Real yards — we are pleased to announce yet another contract award to Navantia, this time for the East Anglia One offshore wind project being developed by Iberdrola in British waters of the North Sea.”
The East Anglia One wind farm will be commissioned in 2020.
