Statoil has awarded Siemens two contracts for the engineering, supply and commissioning and service of 67 wind turbine generators. The generators are for the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm project with engineering work set to start this month.
The service contract will cover operations and maintenance of the wind turbine generators throughout the first two years once the full installation is completed. This is then followed by three years where Siemens will provide Dudgeon with technicians and services.
The supply contract which covers engineering, procurement, assembly and offshore commissioning for each 6MW turbine, along with the service contract totals a value of £516 million.
The Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm is Statoil’s second full-scale commercial offshore wind project and once in operation, the farm is set to provide renewable energy to 400,000 households in the UK.
