Under the multi-million-pound contract, Bureau Veritas will provide quality, fabrication management, and inspection services, representing ScottishPower Renewables within a significant portion of the project supply chain.

In addition, the company will also be responsible for overseeing the quality control of the construction works as the project moves into the offshore installation phase.

“We’re proud to be working with ScottishPower Renewables through our BV Green Line of Renewables services and solutions and building on our own strong reputation and technical capabilities in the offshore wind sector. As an impartial partner, our focus will be on reducing overall project risk, ensuring quality and promoting best practice across the development of East Anglia THREE, and utilising our global team of experts”, said Darren Taylor, Sector Lead-Renewables at Bureau Veritas.

East Anglia Three, which was awarded Contracts for Difference (CfD) in July last year from the UK Government, is located approximately 70 kilometres from shore in the Southern North Sea.

The project will feature 95 monopile foundations that are planned to be installed by Seaway 7. Construction of East Anglia Three started last year with onshore work on the converter station in Suffolk and along the land cable route, while offshore work is scheduled to begin next year.

The offshore wind farm is expected to be fully completed in 2026.


“It’s great to have Bureau Veritas on board and bringing its world-leading skills and experience to this exciting project, which will not only deliver a green energy boost, but will support significant investment and jobs both directly and throughout the supply chain”, said Ross Ovens, Managing Director of ScottishPower.

Bureau Veritas has a track record of more than 250 GW in offshore and onshore wind and solar and supports major power companies globally. Its shop inspection team can act as a second party for developers and OEMs, acting as a representative of its client, or as an accredited or voluntary third party.
