ScottishPower Renewables has awarded a contract worth circa GBP 55 million to Fugro, one of the world’s leading geo-data specialists, as part of work to create the East Anglia Hub. The East Anglia Hub combines three offshore wind farm projects (East Anglia ONE North, Two and Three) into one single delivery programme with a capacity of 3,100MW – enough to power the equivalent of over 2.7 million homes. Once complete the East Anglia Hub could provide around 7.5% of the updated 40GW target the UK Government has set for offshore wind generation by 2030, playing a major part in contributing to the UK’s target of meeting Net Zero by 2050 and a key role in the UK’s green economic recovery.

The contract will see Fugro undertaking geophysical surveys and site investigations across the East Anglia Hub project sites and export cable corridors in 2020 and 2021.

Work begins this month, starting with the development of site characterisation surveys and investigations focused on East Anglia ONE North and East Anglia Two, which will enable ground model development and preliminary designs.

When completed, the hub will comprise of up to 263 wind turbines and Fugro’s work will include turbine-specific site investigations across all three locations next year.

The initial 1,400MW of power to be generated through the Hub via East Anglia Three has secured planning consent. Planning applications for the further 1,700MW (split between East Anglia One North and East Anglia Two) have been submitted.
