Danish offshore wind installer A2SEA has signed agreements with two UK ship repair and conversion specialists in relation with two upcoming UK projects: A&P Tyne for Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm and Cammell Laird for Burbo Bank Extension.

A2SEA is currently in the planning phase for its next two projects in the UK, Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm off the coast of Norfolk for Statoil, Masdar and Statkraft and Burbo Bank Extension in Liverpool Bay for DONG Energy. Increasing local content is part of A2SEA’s overall strategy to bring down the cost of levelized energy.

“It is the first time, we are mobilising in the UK. Our sea fastening will be produced in the UK, too, and we look forward to strengthening our working relationship with UK suppliers,” says Jens Frederik Hansen, CEO at A2SEA.

Sea Challenger will install the 402 MW Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm, which comprises of 67 Siemens 6 MW turbines. First, the vessel will act as accommodation vessel for the project from September until turbine installation is planned to start in the beginning of 2017. Load out port will be Hull.

Sea Installer will install the 256 MW Burbo Bank Extension, which comprises of 32 MHI Vestas 8 MW turbines. The project will start during September and load out port will be Belfast.
