Second contract on world’s largest wind farm

Published:  31 May, 2018

One of the UK’s leading product manufacturer and global supplier of fire, blast and heat hazard solutions - Mech-Tool Engineering Ltd (MTE) - has announced it has successfully secured its second contract to fabricate 20 internal support structures to what will be the world’s largest wind farm to date.

The contract – to fabricate and supply the structures for the Hornsea One offshore wind farm - has been awarded by Billingham based OSB EEW and will see MTE manufacture the suspended internal support structures (SIPS) for OSB’s transition project. The contract is the second win this year for MTE on the prestigious wind farm development and follows the company’s announcement in February that it would be providing general fabrication of transportation cables.

Expected to be the largest wind farm in the world, Hornsea One is located 120km off the Yorkshire coast and, once complete, is expected to power two million homes with green electricity. The project – which is expected to complete in 2021 – will see 174 wind turbines installed and will feature the longest powerline cable route at 900km.

Speaking about the contract win, Anthony Jones, MD at MTE said: “We are delighted to have secured this contract win with OSB. MTE is very pleased to begin this working relationship and we very much look forward to providing services to OSB for many years to come and for many projects in the future."
