TEXO scores Neart na Gaoithe contract

In: Windfarms
TEXO Engineering and Fabrication has been awarded a multi-million-pound fabrication contract from SAIPEM in support of the Neart na Gaoithe (NnG) offshore wind farm project.

TEXO will fabricate temporary steel structures at two of their sites in Blyth and Dundee; the structures will be deployed by SAIPEM vessels to assist with the installation of the pin-piles at all locations across the field. The company stated it will project manage a large and demanding manufacturing schedule, utilising all of TEXO’s services and facilities, delivering the ‘one-team’ approach that TEXO has built into its recent company restructure.

“TEXO has been actively working in the renewables sector for some time. This large contract award will be the springboard to establishing TEXO as a major supplier into this market,”
said Donny Marshall, Director of TEXO Engineering and Fabrication

The 450 MW
Neart na Gaoithe wind farm is owned by EDF Renewables and ESB. Once fully operational, it is expected to generate electricity for around 375,000 homes, or all domestic properties in a city the size of Edinburgh, and to displace 400,000 tons of CO2 annually. It was awarded a CfD by LCCC in February 2015, with a strike price of £114.39/MWh. The first commercial supply of electricity is expected by 2023.
