UXOs identified at East Anglia One

Posted by 4C Offshore on


A total of eight units of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) have been identified within the construction areas of the East Anglia One offshore wind farm located 45km from the Port of Lowestoft off the east coast of England.

Whilst other vessels have been warned to keep clear of the eight locations no other information with regards to clearance has been made available at this point.

The 714MW array will feature 102 SWT-7.0-154 direct-drive wind turbines, each with a capacity of 7MW. Siemens Gamesa is manufacturing the nacelles in Cuxhaven, Germany and plans to produce the corresponding wind turbine blades for the project at its new facility in Hull. Navantia and Lamprell have also begun fabrication of the turbine foundations.

Offshore construction is estimated to start in the coming months with the pre-piling work for the jacket foundations. Full commissioning is scheduled for 2020 and the project is expected to meet the energy demands of 500,000 British households annually.
