Petrofac wins design contract for East Anglia I offshore wind farm in UK

Petrofac has secured a contract from Iberdrola Engineering and Construction UK (IEC) to deliver a detailed engineering design scope to support the next stage of the East Anglia I (EA1) offshore wind farm development.

This is Petrofac’s second project on the EA1 development, with its Project Development group having already completed the basic engineering for IEC earlier this year.

The new contract scope is being undertaken by Petrofac’s detailed design engineers, who will design the offshore substation jacket and foundations in tandem with IEC as it executes the topsides design.

Usman Darr, Director of Engineering Services, Petrofac Engineering & Production Services, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to build on our existing relationship and track record with IEC to support the realisation of its key renewables project. This award reflects our growing position in the offshore wind market, where we continue to build on our track record of delivering a strong, technically competent service for our clients.

“We look forward to working in close partnership with IEC to ensure a safe, successful and aligned approach to project delivery. This contract builds on our core competence of project development, with our ability to offer a full range of multi-discipline engineering support, including concept, FEED and detailed design services across the oil and gas and renewables industry, onshore and offshore.”

The EA1 windfarm development is located in the southern North Sea within the south eastern area of the East Anglia Zone, approximately 45 km south east of Lowestoft.
