Wind work starts at Great Yarmouth

October 21 - Construction works to enhance port infrastructure for several offshore wind projects have begun at Peel Ports Great Yarmouth in the UK.

A multi-million dollar investment has been agreed at the port on the east coast of the UK to support the construction of primary infrastructure and ground works for the Galloper and East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm projects.

Construction work will include the implementation of a yard storage and marshalling area, as well as the installation of heavy lift quay facilities. The work is expected to be completed by early 2017.

ScottishPower Renewables selected Peel Ports Great Yarmouth as its port of choice for construction and installation activities associated with its East Anglia ONE farm earlier this year.

The turbines for the project will be supplied and installed by Siemens, which also selected Great Yarmouth as the assembly and installation base for the Galloper project. Siemens will supply 56 turbines for Galloper and 102 turbines for the East Anglia ONE farm.

Richard Sandford, head of investment and asset management, offshore wind, at innogy SE said: "This Peel Ports Great Yarmouth facility will be the arrival hub for key components of the Galloper Wind Farm such as nacelles, blades, towers and electrical modules, and the base for the tower pre-assembly and nacelle preparation."

Construction of the East Anglia ONE farm is expected to start in 2017 and have its first turbines installed by 2019, while the Galloper project is scheduled to begin operations in 2018.

 

A ground-breaking ceremony is held at the Port of Great Yarmouth, in preparation for the upcoming construction works.
