ScottishPower Renewables has awarded DNV a three-year contract to provide integrated inspection services on the 1400MW East Anglia 3 project.
The offshore wind farm is situated off the coast of Suffolk, England.
The agreement will see DNV conduct a wide range of services, including site inspection, vendor inspection and quality management services across project and vendor locations globally until 2026.
ScottishPower Renewables’ managing director for the East Anglia Hub Ross Ovens said: “East Anglia 3 is set to be the world’s second-largest wind farm when it comes into operation in 2026, and will play a key role in enhancing the UK’s energy security and providing the clean renewable energy that will help us reach net zero.
“As our biggest-ever offshore wind farm, it will generate enough green electricity to power the equivalent of more than one million homes and support more than 2300 jobs during construction, which is just incredible.
“We look forward to drawing on DNV’s deep sector expertise and global footprint to assure the safety and sustainability of our project sites and supply chain as we continue at pace to bring this exciting project to life.”
Managing director of Inspection at DNV Mohamed Houari added: “We are proud to contribute with our expertise to the transformative project that is East Anglia 3 and to further strengthen our partnership with ScottishPower Renewables.
“DNV started its journey into offshore wind inspection services in the UK, already one of the world’s largest offshore wind markets. We continue to grow to service the inspection needs of this rapidly scaling sector.”
