Danish wind developer Orsted has announced that it has signed the world’s largest single turbine deal with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) for 165 turbines to supply the Hornsea Project Two wind farm.

The multi-million agreement will see SGRE conduct pre-assembly work with the majority of 8 megawatts (MW) blades to be manufactured in Hull.

Hornsea Project Two will have will have a capacity of 1,386MW which means it will be capable of supplying over 1.3 million homes with electricity.

The project will use the first ever 81m blades to be manufactured in the UK and will have a rotor diameter of 167m, the largest available on the market.

As part of the agreement SGRE said it plans to partly source the wind turbine towers from the UK.

Duncan Clark, programme director for Hornsea Projects One and Two, said: “We are delighted to continue our partnership with Siemens Gamesa. We’ve worked with them on many other UK projects, including Race Bank, which was officially inaugurated this month and the first project to use blades manufactured at the facility in Hull.

“With our East Coast Hub in construction in Grimsby and the SGRE facility in Hull, it’s clear to see the Humber area really is creating a world-leading cluster in offshore wind. The SGRE investment in the Hull facility has brought hundreds of jobs to the area, and we feel proud to have supported that through our leading contracts with SGRE.”

SGRE UK Managing Director Clark MacFarlane said, “SGRE is delighted again to be working with Orsted in delivering the world’s largest offshore wind farm for the third time in the UK, building on London Array and Hornsea One.

“This latest collaboration with Orsted sees a doubling of capacity and a halving of cost per MW/h over London Array, installed five years ago. Only by using our latest technology and working closely with the customer in every aspect of the project has this been possible. Long may our collaboration continue as we help drive our industry forward.”
