Ørsted places order for Borssele 1+2 with EEW SPC

The Danish energy group Ørsted has awarded EEW Special Pipe Constructions GmbH with the production of 47 monopiles and 35 transition pieces for the offshore wind farm Borssele 1+2.

EW SPC will start production of the foundations in December 2018, with the monopiles being produced in Rostock, Germany and the transition pieces being manufactured at EEW OSB in Teesside, UK. For both plants, this means good base capacity utilisation for the first half of 2019. Heiko Mützelburg, CEO/Managing Director at EEW SPC, confirms: "With this order we are off to a good start in 2019. In addition, with the Dutch offshore wind project Borssele 1+2 we were able to place an order for EEW OSB outside the UK for the first time. We again thank Ørsted for the trustful relationship we built up in the past".

The 752 MW wind farm will be built about 23 km off the coast of Zeeland/NL. In total, 
Borssele 1+2 consists of 94 turbines that will supply around one million households per year with energy once in operation.
