Seaway 7 awarded offshore wind contract

Seaway 7, a subsidiary of Subsea 7, has signed a contract with ScottishPower Renewables to transport and install monopile foundations and internal array cables for the East Anglia 3 offshore wind farm in the UK. The contract value is between $500 million and $750 million.

Under the contract, Seaway 7 will be responsible for the transportation and installation of 95 monopile foundations as well as the manufacture, supply and installation of internal inter-array cables. The company will deploy its fleet of heavy lift vessels, cable-laying vessels and heavy transport vessels to complete the operation.

The East Anglia 3 offshore wind farm, located approximately 70 kilometers off the southern North Sea coast, will have an installed capacity of 1,400 megawatts and will be fitted with 95 Siemens’ SG 14-236 DD offshore turbines, which will generate enough electricity to provide clean energy for 1.3 million homes once fully operational.

Construction of the project began onshore last year, with offshore construction scheduled to begin in 2024, and the wind farm is expected to be fully operational by 2026, when it will be the second largest in the world.

The wind farm is part of ScottishPower Renewables’ £6.5 billion (about €7.4 billion) East Anglia Hub project, which also includes two other offshore wind farms: the 800 MW East Anglia 1 North and 900 MW East Anglia 2.
