UK: E.ON Awards BBUS with Offshore Cabling Contract

UK: E.ON Awards Offshore Cabling Contract to BBUS

E.ON has today announced that Balfour Beatty Utility Solutions (BBUS) has been awarded the contract to install the cable on its Humber Gateway offshore wind farm.

The contract, worth circa £19 million, will involve the design and installation of a 30km section of underground 132kV cable which will be used to connect the Humber Gateway offshore wind farm to a new onshore substation at Hedon in East Yorkshire.

E.ON’s £736 million Humber Gateway wind farm, situated 8km off the Yorkshire Coast close to the mouth of the Humber Estuary, will consist of a 73 turbine array that will generate up to 219MW of electricity, enough energy to power up to 170,000 homes.

Tony Cocker, CEO of E.ON UK, said:  “We’re extremely pleased to be working with Balfour Beatty on this very important next step in the construction of our Humber Gateway wind farm.  Increasing the proportion of electricity we generate from low carbon, renewable sources is a vital part of meeting the energy challenges we all face.”

Balfour Beatty will begin cabling work in summer and E.ON’s entire Humber Gateway project is expected to be complete in Spring 2015.
