Atkins has secured a contract with DONG Energy Wind Power worth GBP 2 million to extend one of their existing wind farms.
The Walney Offshore Wind Farm consists of 102 turbines, each with a capacity of 3.6MW. The extension, which was awarded in 2010, will cover an area of 145 km2 and is fully owned by DONG Energy. The wind farm is located approximately 15 kilometres off Walney Island, Cumbria, in the UK’s Irish Sea. 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.
