Atkins wins role at Hornsea wind farm

Atkins is to provide engineering design services for three substations off the Yorkshire coast.

The firm secured a contract with Dong Energy for the work on the proposed Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm, which will be built 120km off land.

Hornsea Project One is scheduled to enter operation by 2020. It could become the world’s first gigawatt scale wind farm at that distance from shore.

Atkins now has contracts with Dong Energy for detailed engineering design of eight offshore substations.

Working at the Burbo Bank Extension, Race Bank, Walney Extension and Hornsea wind farms, Atkins will offer a standardised approach to fabrication of offshore substations.

Atkins’ power and renewables managing director Phil Malem said: “Our long-standing relationship with Dong Energy demonstrates how the move to a standardised approach for marine renewables design and engineering can drive down costs at the same time as maintaining standards and remaining innovative in our approach.

“Atkins is a leader in the engineering design of offshore structures, and we are proud to be assisting Dong Energy in the transformation of the UK’s offshore wind sector.”
