Vattenfall has contracted 3sun Group to carry out statutory inspections across its offshore and onshore wind farms.
Under the deal, 3sun will provide inspections across Vattenfall’s 50 offshore and onshore wind farms in the UK, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden.
“Vattenfall is delighted to sign up 3sun Group, not just because it’s a great Norfolk business benefiting from our strong presence in the region, but also because the deal offers a great export opportunity for a leading UK business,” said Danielle Lane, Vattenfall’s UK Country Manager.
“The offshore wind sector deal between industry and Government commits to both growing the UK sector work force and exporting the UK’s expertise. We achieve both with this 3sun Group deal.”
According to Vattenfall, up to 30 new jobs will be created to service what is the largest-ever contract for 3sun.
To remind, the Great Yarmouth-based company has recently been acquired by the Australian engineering company Worley.
“This is the biggest framework agreement in our 12-year history and will create 20 to 30 new jobs, which will support the growth of our international multi-skilled workforce,” said Graham Hacon, 3sun Group Founder and Vice President of Offshore Wind (Global) for Worley.
