Taylor Hopkinson has been commissioned by ScottishPower Renewables to supply personnel to the East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm.

Taylor Hopkinson will provide personnel across all packages such as foundations, turbines, offshore transmission which will include site quality/inspection supervision, quality management, and fabrication supervision. Employing 50% UK content, the project aims to stimulate the East Anglia region and support thousands of skilled jobs.

Neil Brown, Senior Consultant for Offshore/Onshore Wind at Taylor Hopkinson commented: “We’ve been supporting the business and following the progress of East Anglia ONE for over 6 years so it’s great to see it finally happening and we’re excited to be involved in the delivery phase.”

The £2.5bn East Anglia ONE wind farm is the first of four projects in the East Anglia region to begin construction. It is being realised solely by ScottishPower Renewables and is located approximately 45km east of Lowestoft, UK. The 714MW array will feature 102 SWT-7.0-154 direct-drive wind turbines, each with a capacity of 7MW.

Pre-piling for the foundations is expected to start in the coming weeks. Full commissioning is scheduled for 2020 and the project is expected to meet the energy demands of 500,000 British households annually.

Taylor Hopkinson have supported Scottish Power Renewables in the past to build out its teams for West of Duddon Sands, Wikinger and Saint Brieuc offshore wind farms.
