UK manufacturer wins E.ON’s offshore contract

Energy supplier E.ON has awarded a contract to a British construction company to provide the foundation pieces for its offshore wind farm.

TAG Energy Solutions will manufacture 16 monopolies and transition pieces, which form the base upon which the wind turbine stands, for E.ON’s £736 million Humber Gateway wind farm. The Teesside based company is believed to be the first UK manufacturer to secure the deal in British waters, which is expected to create an additional 60 jobs.

Situated 8km off the Yorkshire Coast close to the mouth of the Humber Estuary, the wind farm will consist of 73 turbines that will generate up to 219MW of electricity, enough to power up to 170,000 homes.
