Manor Renewable Energy (MRE) has signed a contract with Ørsted for the Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm, under which MRE will provide the full temporary power package of generators, personnel and vessels in case of need during the turbine installation and commissioning.

The works, starting in January 2019, will see MRE utilising their multi-purpose vessel Manor Venture.

Highlighting the contracting of a local company, Ørsted pointed out that the vessel had been manufactured in Portland, UK and that the generators would be provided by UK company, JCB.

MRE Director Toby Mead said: “We’re delighted to once again be working with the global leader in offshore wind, on what will become the world’s largest offshore wind farm. What’s more – we know that Ørsted place significant importance to ensuring UK content for their UK offshore wind farms, so we’re especially pleased to continue to hire from the local area and be able to offer a UK vessel, with UK generators.”

The 1,218MW Hornsea Project One, set to become the largest offshore wind farm in the world once operational in 2020, is being built 120km off the Yorkshire Coast.

The offshore construction is underway with 104 out of 174 turbine monopile foundations and 66 out of 174 inter-array cables already installed, according to information from 1 November.
