CWind, part of the Global Marine Group, has completed this year’s campaign as part of their East Anglia ONE Windfarm contract.
In 2019, CWind was awarded a multi-year contract with ScottishPower Renewables and Macquarie’s Green Investment Group to provide below water services, including subsea inspections of the foundation jackets and offshore substation, any corrective maintenance requested, and pre-engineering studies at the offshore windfarm.
CWind, a leading provider of project engineering services, CTVs and training to the offshore wind industry, worked with Rovco, providers of ROV and hydrographic services, to carry out this year’s campaign.
Nathanael Allison, Managing Director at CWind, said “We are pleased to share the successful completion of our 2020 campaign for ScottishPower Renewables and look forward to returning to East Anglia ONE, to provide our industry-leading subsea engineering services at the 102-turbine windfarm in 2021.
“This project calls on our extensive experience providing project services to the offshore wind industry since 2010 and supports our drive to grow our East Coast hub, further encouraging new employment opportunities both within CWind and throughout the supply chain with talent from the local area.”
Charlie Jordan, East Anglia ONE Project Director at ScottishPower Renewables, said: “Working with an East Coast based contractor such as CWind highlights our commitment to working with local businesses on our current and future East Anglia windfarms.
“The importance of balance of plant work cannot be overstated and we trust in CWind’s ability to continue providing a safe and efficient service so that we can remain operational, providing energy to up to 630,000 homes every year.”
This current contract is not the first awarded to a Global Marine Group company for the East Anglia ONE project. Beginning in 2016, CWind’s sister companies, OceanIQ and Global Offshore, carried out desktop and route engineering studies, and pre-installation cable laying services to support the installation of the region’s largest windfarm.
Located 43km off the coast of Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth, East Anglia ONE, a joint venture between ScottishPower Renewables and Macquarie’s Green Investment Group (GIG), is a £2.5 billion project. It is the first of four offshore windfarms ScottishPower Renewables is developing in the region.
