Balfour Beatty Utility Solutions wins E.ON deal

Balfour Beatty Utility Solutions has won a contract from E.ON to install the cable for its Humber Gateway offshore wind farm.

The contract, worth circa £19m, will involve the design and installation of a 30km section of underground 132kV cable which will be used to connect the Humber Gateway offshore wind farm to a new onshore substation at Hedon in East Yorkshire.

E.ON’s £736m Humber Gateway wind farm, situated 8km off the Yorkshire Coast close to the mouth of the Humber Estuary, will consist of a 73 turbine array that will generate up to 219MW of electricity, enough energy to power up to 170,000 homes.

Mike Sparrow, managing director at Balfour Beatty Utility Solutions, said: “We’re very much looking forward to working with E.ON on the Humber Gateway wind farm and believe that offering innovative solutions to shared challenges around sustainability, efficiency and safety has been key in securing this work.”

Balfour Beatty will begin cabling work in summer and E.ON’s entire Humber Gateway project is expected to be complete in spring 2015.
