From summer 2019, A2SEA’s purpose-built offshore installation vessel Sea Challenger will be deployed to install 102 Siemens 7 MW turbines on East Anglia ONE from the load out port in Great Yarmouth in the UK.

East Anglia ONE is one of the Round three projects in the UK. The wind farm is located approximately 45 kilometres off the Suffolk Coast in the southern North Sea and has a total capacity of 714 MW. East Anglia ONE is owned by ScottishPower Renewables and when fully commissioned in early 2020, the wind farm will provide green energy for well over 500,000 homes in the UK.

”A2SEA is very proud to be part of building this extensive offshore wind farm. We have formerly worked with ScottishPower Renewables and Siemens Wind Power on West of Duddon Sands OWF, and I am confident that by providing our competent and experienced crew both onshore and offshore will ensure a project delivered both on time, on budget and most importantly in a safe manner,” says Jens Frederik Hansen, CEO at A2SEA.

A2SEA, headquartered in Fredericia, recently completed installing turbines on Gode Wind 2+1 and is currently installing on Burbo Bank Ext. Upcoming projects include turbine installation on Dudgeon OWF, Race Bank OWF, Arkona OWF, Hornsea Project One and Horns Rev 3.
