The Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI) has won the contract for Structural Measurement Campaign at Ørsted's   Hornsea Two development in the UK.

The scope of the contract includes design, production and installation of instrumentation of six Offshore Wind Turbines (OWT) for monitoring of the monopile foundation, transition piece and wind turbine generator tower.

The instrumentation systems supplied by NGI will provide data for structural health and response monitoring during the installation phase, initial and life-time operation. The data will automatically be transmitted to shore at given intervals for further analysis. The yard installations are planned to be completed later this year and final offshore commissioning is set for 2022.

"We are pleased that Ørsted has awarded this contract to NGI and our sub-suppliers, this is a contract won in sharp international competition. We believe that NGI's track record with Ørsted over many years, with delivery of complex instrumentation and monitoring systems to several of Ørsted's offshore wind parks around the world has built confidence in our ability to deliver high quality operational solutions on time,"
says Kristoffer Skau, NGI's Director for GeoData and Technology.

The 1.4 GW
Hornsea Two offshore wind farm secured a Contract for Difference in September 2017. Once operational in 2022, the wind farm is expected to supply clean electricity to over 1.3 million homes. It will consist of 165 Siemens Gamesa SG 8.0-167 DD turbines covering an offshore area of 462 km².
