PORTS AND PORT SERVICES A joint equity partnership GALLOPER WINDFARM


Galloper Wind Farm is a 336MW offshore windfarm, currently being constructed 30km off the coast of Suffolk. It is a joint equity partnership between innogy SE, UK Green Investment Bank, Siemens Financial Services and Macquarie Capital, with innogy leading the development and construction of the project on behalf of the project partners


PROJECT


The project has three key bases positioned along the east coast of England. This includes the Siemens turbine assembly base in Great Yarmouth, the purpose built onshore substation in Sizewell and the planned operations & maintenance base in Harwich. The offshore construction for the project is being coordinated out of the Port of Lowestoft with local firm James Fisher & Son supporting the marine and offshore activity.


CONSTRUCTION


Construction on the project is well underway with all 56 turbine foundations, made up of steel monopiles and transition pieces, successfully installed two months ahead of schedule. The project is now moving onto the installation of the 6MW turbines. The Siemens turbines, measuring 90 metres tall, along with 600-tonne nacelles and 70 metre blades, are being pre-assembled at the assembly base at Peel Ports, Great Yarmouth. A 120 metre crane lifts the turbines on to vessels to sail them to the site ready for installation.

FEATURE SPONSOR


That’s only the beginning of the activity for Galloper over the coming months as the team will install the second and final export cable, offshore substation and array cables.


COMMUNITY FUND


Beyond constructing the wind farm, Galloper has also set up a community fund which aims to contribute to the appearance, setting, conservation, amenity, accessibility and enjoyment of the Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB. A total of £187,000 is available over 17 years and it has already supported organisations such as the Suffolk Wildlife Trust and Sudbourne Park Printmakers.


OPERATIONAL COMPLETION


The project will be fully operational in Spring 2018 and once complete, Galloper will have the capacity to generate enough power for up to 336,000 homes and create 90 long term jobs along the east coast.
