Petrofac says it has won a contract from Iberdrola Engineering and Construction U.K. Ltd. (IEC) to deliver a detailed engineering design scope to support the next stage of the 714 MW East Anglia I (EA1) offshore wind farm development.
According to Petrofac, this is its second project on the EA1 development so far, 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.
Usman Darr, director of engineering services for Petrofac, said, “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. This contract builds on our core competence of project development, with our ability to offer a full range of multidiscipline engineering support, including concept, FEED, and detailed design services across the oil and gas and renewables industry, onshore and offshore.”
The EA1 wind farm development is located in the southern North Sea within the southeastern area of the East Anglia Zone, approximately 45 kilometers southeast of Lowestoft.
