International engineering and operations support services contractor ODE, an integral part of the DORIS Group, has been awarded an external resources consultancy framework agreement by Scottish Power Renewables to support the East Anglia ONE offshore windfarm.

The agreement is the latest development in an eight-year relationship between ODE and Scottish Power Renewables, which has invested £2.5 billion in the East Anglia ONE project.

Located approximately 79 kilometres from Lowestoft, East Anglia ONE will consist of up to 102 wind turbines and foundations, each rated at seven megawatts. This gives an overall generating capacity of up to 714 megawatts – the equivalent of powering more than 500,000 homes.

ODE brings a strong successful track record in delivering both support and innovative solutions to several local and international offshore wind developments.

The contract will see ODE deliver engineering and project management support personnel for a period of up to five years out of the Project Office in Central London. ODE’s Marine Base and Engineering support facilities in Great Yarmouth is also able to support the offshore installation works and eventually the operations and maintenance activities in the field throughout the service period.

ODE Managing Director, Peter Godfrey said: “With extensive knowledge of the offshore wind industry and the local region, we are well positioned to support the East Anglia ONE project. This is an important contract for the team at ODE, as not only will it create new jobs, but it will also safeguard existing roles within our business.

Due to be fully commissioned in 2020, the project will play an important role in UK offshore wind power generation, it is an exciting opportunity and we are proud to be a key part of it”.
