EEW OSB Marks Milestone with Hornsea One Transition Piece
- Operations & Maintenance
EEW Offshore Structures (Britain) Ltd has produced its 100th transition piece, which is due to set sail to Ørsted’s Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm.
EEW OSB expects to fully complete the transition piece on 19 June at its plant in Haverton Hill, UK, with the structure scheduled to leave for the wind farm on 29 August.
The company said the 100th transition piece represents a milestone since production started at the plant just over two and a half years ago.
Ray Taviner, Managing Director, said: “It’s a fantastic achievement for us, EEW OSB to reach this milestone in such a short period of time, and we hope to continue in the future, building on the excellent work already achieved.”
Located 120km off the Yorkshire Coast in the UK, the 1.2GW Hornsea Project One will comprise 174 Siemens 7MW wind turbines, three offshore substations and a reactive compensation substation (RCS).
Once fully operational in 2020, it will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world.
