DONG Energy has signed a contract with Bladt Industries for 96 transition pieces for its Hornsea Project One offshore windfarm. Over 50 transition pieces (56), which link the monopile foundation of offshore wind turbines with the towers, will be manufactured at the Offshore Structures Britain (OSB) facility in Haverton Hill near Billingham, Teesside.
The remaining transition pieces (40) will be manufactured at the Bladt Aalborg facility in Denmark. The Teesside facility, previously owned by TAG Energy solutions was in 2015 taken over by Bladt Industries and EEW who formed Offshore Structures Britain (OSB). With a capacity of 1.2GW Hornsea Project One will be the first windfarm in the world over 1GW.
