ScottishPower Renewables has awarded CWind a contract worth up to £8.2M (US$10.2M) for work on the East Anglia One offshore windfarm
The company will provide below water services, including subsea maintenance of the foundations and offshore substation, subsea surveys and any corrective maintenance, as well as pre-engineering studies.
The three-year contract, with options for two further one-year extensions, will see CWind staff working both onshore and offshore servicing the windfarm. It will also create new employment opportunities throughout the supply chain.
To date, ScottishPower Renewables has handed a wide range of contracts to companies across the East of England, reinforcing its commitment to working with local suppliers on East Anglia One.
The developer has pledged to spend over £70M (US$87M) with businesses across the region to support the development of the windfarm.
East Anglia One is due to be fully operational later this year, with turbine installation currently well underway and the operations and maintenance base now fully operational.
