Siemens wins $846m Dudgeon offshore wind project

Statoil has awarded two contracts to Siemens Energy for the engineering, supply, assembly, commissioning and service of 67 wind turbine generators for the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm project, off England’s North Sea coast.

The $846m (£516m) wind turbine generator (WTG) supply contract will cover engineering, procurement, assembly and offshore commissioning. Each turbine (6.0 MW) consists of a tower section, a nacelle and three separate rotor blades (154-metre rotor diameter).

The engineering work will commence in January 2014 and the first turbines are scheduled to be ready for load out and installation January 2017.

The service contract will cover operations and maintenance of the WTGs through the first two years after installation is completed, followed by three years where Siemens (NYSE: SI) provides Dudgeon with technicians and other agreed services.

The Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm is Statoil's second full-scale commercial offshore wind project and once in operation, it will provide renewable energy to approximately 400,000 households in the UK market.
