Navantia and Harland & Wolff to jointly pursue UK offshore wind projects
Navantia and Harland and Wolff (Belfast) Limited are in advanced teaming agreement discussions for cooperation in the offshore wind sector.
The partnership will focus on fixed and floating foundations for the offshore wind sector in the UK.
The teaming agreements are in relation to a series of specific projects that have been identified as commercially viable, InfraStrata, Harland & Wolff’s parent company, said.
“We have always selected our partners carefully. In Navantia, we see a long-term partner not only within the defence sector, but also in the offshore wind farm sector for fixed and floating foundations, for which we are already in advanced teaming agreement discussions,” the company writes.
At the end of last year, Navantia and InfraStrata signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to cooperate on offshore wind projects, among other things.
The deal envisages the usage of the UK shipyard’s assets for providing a range of services to Navantia.
