A2SEA signs contract to install 102 turbines on East Anglia ONE for Siemens Wind Power
From summer 2019, A2SEA will play a key role in building East Anglia ONE off the coast of Great Yarmouth in the UK. East Anglia ONE is one of the Round three projects in the UK. The total capacity of the wind farm is 714MW. 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.
”A2SEA is very proud to be part of building this extensive offshore wind farm. 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 Jens Frederik Hansen, CEO at A2SEA.
To benefit UK suppliers, and in our continuous search to optimise the share of local content in our projects, A2SEA will continue to work with a range of UK suppliers for the mobilisation of SEA CHALLENGER, for sea fastening etc. East Anglia ONE is owned by ScottishPower Renewables and when fully commissioned in early 2020, the wind farm will provide green energy for well over 500,000 homes in the UK.
