Carillion Wins £30m Dudgeon Offshore Wind Contract

Carillion has been awarded a £30m contract by Dudgeon Offshore Windfarm Ltd to design, supply, install and test a twin circuit onshore 132kV cable system over a distance of 47km from landfall near Weybourne, Norfolk to Necton, Norfolk. 

Dudgeon Offshore Windfarm Ltd., a joint venture between Statoil, Statkraft and Masdar, will invest approximately £1.5bn in the offshore wind farm which will provide enough energy to power 410,000 homes each year.

The new cable system will connect the subsea cable that will take the power from the offshore wind turbines to a new National Grid sub-station. The contract will involve the design, supply and installation of 288km of 132kV cable and associated jointing accessories and will create approximately 80 jobs.

As part of the project, Carillion will undertake all civil engineering and cable installation activities, including crossing a number of watercourses and strategic roads using trenchless techniques. The project is the longest of its type ever delivered in the UK and reinforces Carillion’s position as a leading transmission and distribution contractor in the UK.

The onshore cabling project will start later this year and is scheduled to be commissioned in 2016.

Graham Carr, Managing Director of Carillion Network Services said: “We are delighted to have been selected for this complex contract to deliver the onshore cabling project for the Dudgeon Offshore Windfarm. This project builds on the excellent relationship that Carillion has developed with Statoil and Statkraft. Being chosen to deliver a key part of this prestigious project reflects our reputation for reliable delivery, high standards of quality, value for money and sustainability, together with the strength of our long-term customer relationships.”
