Navantia complete substation construction

IberdrolaThe offshore wind substation, named Andalucía II and currently the largest marine AC substation, built by Navantia in the shipyard of Puerto Real and to be used on the East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm, will begin its journey to the array in the coming weeks to the wind farm. 
José Esteban García Vilasánchez, president of Navantia, attended the delivery ceremony of the electrical substation, as well as; Ignacio Galán, president of Iberdrola; and Susana Díaz, president of the Junta de Andalucía.

The delivery of the substation, carried out within the agreed deadline after 16 months of work, has generated around 450 jobs, mostly local, which at peak work rose to 600 people. 
Esteban García Vilasánchez thanked Iberdrola for the opportunity to demonstrate the capabilities of Navantia to develop such programs in the offshore wind sector. 

He also commented that it is "a key diversification business line for Navantia, which complements the main activity, the naval defense market as a strategic company serving national security, as reflected in the company's strategic plan".

At present, the £2.5bn
East Anglia ONE will consist of 102 Siemens Gamesa 7MW wind turbines, giving an overall generating capacity of up to 714MW, which is enough green energy to supply over half a million homes.

Two seabed export cables, each around 73km in length, will transfer the electricity to a landfall site at Bawdsey, Suffolk.
