Siemens Gamesa has awarded the Australian engineering company Worley with a contract to provide inspection and maintenance services of the lifting equipment at the London Array wind farm off the UK.
Under the contract, Worley will carry out statutory inspections and general maintenance of the wind turbine cranes and lifts across all of the wind farm’s turbines.
The 630 MW London Array comprises 175 Siemens SWT-3.6 wind turbines installed over 20 kilometres off the Kent coast.
This contract award follows Worley’s entry into the offshore wind segment through the acquisition of 3sun in October 2019.
The services will be executed by Worley’s Great Yarmouth team in the United Kingdom.
“I’m delighted that we have been chosen by SGRE to help deliver this strategically important project. This supports our ongoing commitment to the energy transition and continues our strategy of delivering enhanced operations and maintenance services to the global offshore wind market,” said Chris Ashton, Chief Executive Officer, Worley.
London Array has been in operation since 2013.
