James Fisher Marine Secures East Anglia ONE Contract

James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS) will provide integrated marine services package for the East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm, developed by OrbisEnergy tenant, ScottishPower Renewables. 

The company was confirmed as the integrated marine services contractor for the 714MW project at East of England Energy Group’s (EEEGR) House of Commons reception on 18 October.

Under the contract, JFMS will provide, inter alia, marine coordination through its Offshore Wind Management System, vessels, as well as diving and ROV services.

The GBP 2.5 billion East Anglia ONE will comprise 102 Siemens 7MW wind turbines mounted on 60 jacket foundations built by Lamprell and 42 by Navantia. Navantia will also build the offshore substation for East Anglia ONE.

Offshore construction at the project site located 43km off the Suffolk coast in the UK is due to start in 2018.

The foundations will be installed by Seajacks and Van Oord, with the main installation vessel being Seajacks Scylla, while A2SEA – now owned by GeoSea – was awarded a contract for turbine installation, planned to be carried out by using the installation vessel Sea Challenger.

The wind farm is expected to be fully-operational in early 2020.
