H&W wins Humber Gateway work

The demonstrator will be built at the Harland and Wolff yard in Belfast
E.ON has handed Harland and Wolff (H&W) an order to design and fabricate the jacket foundation that will support the offshore substation at its Humber Gateway project, further consolidating the historic shipyard’s role in the offshore wind sector.

H&W will build both the substructure itself and the piles to hold it in place – some 1,300 tonnes of kit, all told, slated for completion in early 2014.

Belgium’s CG Power is designing and building offshore substation that H&W’s jacket-style foundation will support.

The Round 2 Humber Gateway project will tip the scales at 219MW using 73 Vestas turbines, and is due for completion in 2015.  

It is the second time H&W has worked for E.ON in the offshore wind space, having seen its yards used for storage, assembly and off-loading for the Robin Rigg project in 2008-2009.
