EEW OSB wins Hornsea Two contract

The 1.4 GW, Hornsea Two will overtake its sister project Hornsea One as the biggest offshore wind farm in the world when operational in 2022, and 30 Transition Pieces (TPs) will be manufactured at EEW OSB, in Teesside.

EEW OSB will roll primary steel, weld, coat and paint the tubular structures as well as fit them out internally with secondary structures. This order represents its fifth project with industry leader Ørsted.

Duncan Clark, programme director for Hornsea Two, said: “EEW OSB shows how UK companies can benefit from offshore wind. We’re delighted to be working with EEW OSB again and this contract is an example of the Sector Deal in action. By placing successive orders which allow continuous production, we can provide suppliers with the opportunity they crave, to drive their continual improvement and develop a sustainably competitive market position based on productivity and efficiency.”

The remaining transition pieces will be manufactured by Bladt Industries, and all turbines will be manufactured by Siemens Gamesa, with the majority of blades manufactured at their facility in Hull.
