Atkins secures £2million contract with DONG Energy


Atkins has secured a contract with DONG Energy Wind Power worth £2million to extend one of their existing wind farms.


WALNEY OFFSHORE WIND FARM The Walney Offshore Wind Farm consists of 102 turbines, each with a capacity of 3.6MW, making it one of the biggest of its kind in the world. The extension, which was awarded in 2010, will cover an area of 145 km2 and is fully owned by DONG Energy.


Located approximately 15km off Walney Island, Cumbria, in the UK’s Irish Sea, the farm provides clean electricity for approximately 320,000 UK households.


PROJECT RESPONSIBLITY Atkins’ role in this extension programme, which will run until 2016, will involve the concept design, detailed design and support during fabrication and final installation of two offshore substations including both the jackets and topsides.


Atkins’ technical expertise and experience in offshore engineering factored heavily in securing this contract.


Brian Lauritsen, Engineering Manager, DONG Energy, commented: “As a market leader DONG Energy has always used high class consultancies for our work. Atkins’ deep pedigree in offshore engineering from their 40 years of oil and gas experience, combined with their sector knowledge of our offshore renewable meant they were our first choice for the extension of Walney Offshore wind farm.”


Dave Parkin, Head of Power and Renewable at Atkins, commented: “This contract will further demonstrate our design capability to the offshore substation market and cements our position as a leading engineering and design consultancy in the offshore renewables sector.”
