Turbine installation complete on East Anglia ONE offshore windfarm
A total of 102 offshore wind turbines have been installed at the windfarm site, 43km off the Suffolk coast. Installation was undertaken by Siemens Gamesa using the Sea Installer and Sea Challenger vessels, operated by DEME.
All turbine components were pre-assembled and loaded out from Peel Ports Great Yarmouth, following ScottishPower Renewables’ £5 million co-investment in the port to prepare it for construction and marshalling activity. The components consist of 75-metre fibre glass blades, tower sections and nacelles (the head of the turbine), which have been on view along the Great Yarmouth seafront and skyline as the 90-metre-high towers were constructed on the quayside.
