The wind farm, which will be located 20 miles off the coast of Cromer in North Norfolk, is expected to have an installed capacity of around 400MW, enough energy to power up to approximately 410,000 homes. It will also reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 19 million tonnes over the facility’s 25 year lifetime, while providing 0.5 per cent of the UK’s overall annual electricity needs.

“This contract win further builds on our established position as a leading engineering consultancy in the offshore wind sector” said David Parkin, managing director for Atkins’ Renewables business. “The project plays to our strengths in geotechnical and offshore structural engineering, and we look forward to working with Statoil and Statkraft to deliver the project.”

The contract will cover all design and engineering services for the 6.0MW turbines monopile foundations as well as management assistance during fabrication and installation.  The engineering work for the facility is already underway. It includes structure design, structure analysis and drawing production as well as geotechnical engineering. The management assistance part of the contract includes follow up of the fabrication which will commence in 2015.

The project is subject to a final investment decision by its owners in Q3 2014.
