Petrofac has secured a contract from Iberdrola Engineering and Construction UK Limited (IEC) to deliver a detailed engineering design scope to support the next stage of the East Anglia I (EA1) offshore wind farm development. This is Petrofac’s second project on the EA1 development, with its Project Development group having already completed the basic engineering for IEC earlier this year.
The new contract scope is being undertaken by Petrofac’s detailed design engineers, who will design the offshore substation jacket and foundations in tandem with IEC as it executes the topsides design.
“This award reflects our growing position in the offshore wind market, where we continue to build on our track record of delivering a strong, technically competent service for our clients,” said Usman Darr, Director of Engineering Services, Petrofac Engineering & Production Services. “We look forward to working in close partnership with IEC to ensure a safe, successful and aligned approach to project delivery.”
The EA1 wind farm is a 714-MW development located in the southern North Sea within the south eastern area of the East Anglia Zone, approximately 45 km south east of Lowestoft. Siemens has received the order to supply, install, and commission 102 wind turbines, each with a capacity of 7 MW and a rotor diameter of 154 meters.
“This contract builds on our core competence of project development with our ability to offer a full range of multi-discipline engineering support, including concept, FEED and detailed design services across the renewables industry, onshore and offshore,” added Darr.
