Via, UK Managing Director of METEC UK, said: “Over the last six months
we’ve been absolutely delighted to win a number of domestic and international
contracts, including in Scotland, France and Holland. These latest successes
– and in particular the flagship Dogger Bank Wind Farm contract – justifies
our commitment to South Tyneside, the north-east and the UK. Our success
demonstrates our ability to support large, important and prestigious renewable
energy projects of this nature throughout the UK and Europe.
have the capacity, capability and expertise at Metec that places us right
at the heart of where we need to be in an industry which is set to see
significant growth and investment over the next 10 years.
a young, ambitious and expanding company, which has invested over £4 million
in premises and furnaces since 2017, we expect to see further growth throughout
2021. We are in this for the long term and we’re very excited for the
future of Metec and the industry as a whole.”
Brustad, Vice President for Dogger Bank at Equinor, said: “As we build
up our operations in South Tyneside it’s great to see a local company
not only win this flagship contract with the world’s biggest offshore
wind farm, but also exporting to other countries.
ambitious targets to quadruple UK capacity in the next decade, the offshore
wind industry provides billions of pounds of supply chain opportunities,
and in supporting UK companies we will also build up a competitive supply
chain that can win international contracts.
look forward to continuing to work with UK companies, particularly in northern
England where we will operate the wind farm for decades to come.”
UK is a sub-contractor with Dogger Bank Wind Farm’s tier one contractor,
Smulders. Smulders was selected for the supply, fabrication and fit-out
of the secondary steel for the transition pieces in late 2020. Smulders
will work alongside Sif, the company selected to provide fabrication and
supply of 190 monopiles and primary steel for the transition pieces.
The 3.6 GW Dogger Bank Wind Farm, which is being delivered in the North
Sea in three 1.2 GW phases, is set to be the world’s largest offshore
wind farm when complete. The first two phases, Dogger
Bank A and
Bank B, each
feature 95 turbines of 13 MW apiece. These are a joint venture between
Equinor (40%), SSE Renewables (40%) and Eni (20%). The third phase, Dogger
Bank C, is being developed on a different timescale and is owned by SSE
Renewables (50%) and Equinor (50%).
The project partners reached financial close on the first two phases, Dogger
Bank A and
Bank B, at
the beginning of December. The Dogger
Bank C financial
decision is expected to come in late 2021. The projects will be capable
of powering up to 4.5 UK million homes each year when complete in 2026.
Each project is expected to generate around 6 TWh of electricity annually.
SSE Renewables is leading the development and construction phases of Dogger
Bank Wind Farm, and Equinor will lead on operations for its lifetime of
up to 35 years.
