Wind blows into Harwich International Port

March 7 - In the UK, Harwich International Port has landed a new contract with Aarsleff Bilfinger Berger Joint Venture (ABJV) to act as as ABJV's UK installation port for phase 1 of the London Array offshore wind farm.

ABJV is the project's installation contractor and was appointed by the wind farm's developers, DONG EnergyE.ONand Masdar.

Located in the outer Thames Estuary, the London Array could eventually power up to 750,000 homes. Phase 1 installation commenced in February 2011, ending in 2012 and will consist of 175 Siemens 3.6 MW turbines.

David Gledhill, chief executive officer of Hutchison Ports (UK) which owns Harwich International Port said: "This will be the third time that Harwich International Port has acted as the main installation port for an offshore wind project, having first acted for Gunfleet Sands and then Greater Gabbard. For a time, Greater Gabbard and London Array will run concurrently, demonstrating the port's ability to accommodate two of the world's largest offshore windfarm construction projects simultaneously."
