The deal brings the number of
substation jobs awarded by the Danish utility to the consultancy to five, with Atkins
also engineering units for the Walney and Burbo Bank Extension projects.
“Atkins is working with us to
provide a design for five substations that can be applied to three of our
projects,” said Dong Energy UK country manager Benj Sykes.
“This will enable a
production-line approach to fabrication, rather than a bespoke solution each
time, and will reduce costs without compromising safety and reliability.
“Dong has a tough target to cut
the cost of offshore wind by 35-40% by 2020. We are doing this through standardising
the building of a wind farm.”
