offshore wind 2by3

Balfour Beatty has won a £25M power scheme in Lincolnshire.

The contractor will build a high voltage onshore substation for Dong Energy as part of the Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm.

The substation will be built at North Killingholme in Lincolnshire. It was announced this week that the existing gas-fired Killingholme power station would close in March.

The Balfour Beatty project will include the construction of core buildings and compounds, the installation of low voltage cables and other equipment, and work on roads, paths, drainage and landscaping.

The project will start in January and is scheduled for completion in summer 2018.

Balfour Beatty regional managing director for the the North and Midlands Mark Farrah said: “Following Balfour Beatty’s successful completion of Westermost Rough and the current Burbo Bank project, the Hornsea Project One contract award is testament to the longstanding, successful relationships our project teams have established over the last three years.

“We’re proud to work with Dong Energy in the construction of the onshore substation ensuring that our drive for safety, quality and innovation is at the forefront of our work”.
