ScottishPower Renewables awarded major offshore wind power contracts to Seajacks, an offshore solutions company, and a marine support company Gardline.
Gardline was awarded contracts worth over £6 million by ScottishPower Renewables to carry out a range of pre-construction surveys across the 714-megawatt East Anglia ONE, 800-megawatt ONE North and 800-megawatt TWO offshore wind farm sites.
The wind farms will be located 30 miles off the coast of East Anglia, in the North Sea.
Additionally, Gardline has been appointed, through its subsidiary Alpine, to carry out a geophysical survey for the Vineyard Wind Project, located off the coast of Massachusetts in the U.S.
ScottishPower Renewables’ sister company Avangrid Renewables in the U.S. owns 50 percent of the project.
Seajacks secured a contract to carry out work on the 70-turbine, 350-megawatt Wikinger offshore wind farm project, currently being built in the Baltic Sea off the north coast of Germany.
“We will be installing jacket foundations on East Anglia ONE with Seajacks Scylla and supporting the commissioning of the Wikinger offshore substation,” Blair Ainslie, Seajacks CEO, said.
“Seajacks and Gardline are at the forefront of their respective fields, and we look forward to a successful partnership with both companies as they deliver important projects for our global offshore wind power developments,” said Jonathan Cole, managing director of offshore wind at ScottishPower Renewables.
