They will provide a turnkey solution to the offshore windfarms owners; designing, fabricating, transporting and installing both steel jacket and topside of the windfarms offshore substation. MD Petrofac Offshore, Yves Inbona, said of the contract:

“Our collaboration with GE bolsters our efforts to help customers succeed in harnessing the power of the wind to provide communities with renewable energy.”

The project is now fully underway; construction will continue through 2016 with the offshore substation scheduled to be installed in 2017. Both Petrofac and owners Galloper Offshore Wind Farm Ltd have stated that the wind farm will commence operations in March 2018.

Once the wind farm begins operating, the wind farm is expected to produce enough electricity to power 330,000 homes across the UK.
