NnG, Saipem and InfraStrata announce major contract for Harland & Wolff

19 Apr 2021

Neart na Gaoithe (NnG) Offshore Wind Ltd (jointly owned by EDF Renewables and ESB), its tier one service provider, Saipem, and InfraStrata, owner of Harland & Wolff, have announced a contract for Harland & Wolff to carry out the fabrication and load-out of eight of the project’s wind turbine generator (WTG) foundation jackets.

With work starting from 1 July, 2021, Harland & Wolff will use its newly acquired Methil facilities in Fife for the fabrication work, creating around 290 direct and indirect Scottish jobs. Additional support may be provided as required by the company’s other facilities in Arnish, Appledore and Belfast.

The foundations, used to support and anchor NnG’s WTGs to the seabed, are being supplied and installed by Saipem who will also supply and install an additional two jackets for the offshore substations.

NnG is committed to utilising the Scottish supply chain and this work on the project is a further boost to the offshore wind industry in Scotland, providing new green jobs and manufacturing opportunities.

Offshore construction for NnG started in August last year with the installation of casings for the piles and preparing the seabed in advance of the arrival of the steel foundation jackets.
