World's Largest Offshore Wind Farm

Company News, Contract Awards, Energy, Water & Waste, EMEA

Wilton Engineering Services selected SPIE UK to install 20 transition pieces at the world’s largest offshore wind farm, Ørsted (formerly DONG Energy) Hornsea Project One.


Hornsea Project One

As a Principal Electrical Contractor to the Wilton Engineering Services' engineering team, the UK subsidiary of European multi-technical services provider, SPIE, was previously responsible for the electrical fit out of 20 of 174 turbines and a 21st Transition Piece for utilization as a spare/mock-up trial unit (one of several variations to the project) at the same location.


SPIE has worked with Wilton Engineering Services on oil and gas contracts in the past, although the current contract is the first time both companies have worked together in the renewable energy sector. 


Commenting on the contract, Philip Kinsella, divisional managing director for SPIE UK, said:

"We were delighted to continue our long and successful relationship with WESL. Our team’s extensive expertise ensured that all the Transition Pieces were delivered within an industry-leading timescale and in accordance with client expectation."

Kevin Wilson, Wilton Engineering Services' project manager, added:

"We would like to thank SPIE for providing a high level of service, commitment and installation quality across all 21 Transition Pieces. This level was instrumental in the praise Wilton Engineering received from the owner Ørsted A/S (formerly DONG Energy) for the high quality of product fit and finish of all our 21 Transition Pieces prior to their take over.


"As Wilton look to further expand our business into the area of renewable energy, it is reassuring that we can look to SPIE to assist us with the electrical fit off scope in the knowledge that they will provide a first class and technically compliant installation".
