19 February 2018 – Offshore Wind Consultants Limited (OWC) has been tasked to provide an offshore construction readiness assessment for the ScottishPower Renewable East Anglia ONE offshore windfarm.
OWC, part of Oslo-listed energy consultancy group Aqualis ASA, will conduct an offshore readiness assessment to ensure the project is ready to complete the offshore works in an efficient and safe manner. The future offshore work includes installation of piles, jackets, export cable and offshore substations. The contract value for OWC is undisclosed
The East Anglia One project is being realised by ScottishPower Renewables, who will deploy 102 wind turbines with a total installed capacity of 714 MW, the equivalent of powering more than 500,000 UK homes. The wind farm is located approximately 45 kilometres east of Lowestoft, East Anglia, UK.
“OWC will support the East Anglia ONE project in undertaking a thorough construction readiness assessment. This will ensure the project benefits from our extensive knowledge across the offshore wind industry in learning lessons from previous projects and with an aim to help the East Anglia ONE project to be delivered as safely and efficiently as possible,” says Ian Bonnon, managing director of Offshore Wind Consultants.
OWC will primarily execute the project with personnel from its London office, with some support from its Hamburg office and sister company Aqualis Offshore’s office in Sandefjord, Norway.
