Windar Wins Vineyard Wind Work
Spain’s Windar Renovables has won a contract to manufacture and deliver 84 transition pieces for the 800MW Vineyard Wind offshore wind farm in Massachusetts, US.
The contract covers the manufacture, certification, assembly, inspection, storage and delivery of the 84 transition pieces.
The value of the contract is close to EUR 100 million and it will create up to 500 jobs at peak production times at Windar’s facilities in Asturias.
The 84 TPs will support the wind farm’s MHI Vestas 9.5MW wind turbines installed some 14 miles south of Martha’s Vineyard. The construction is expected to start this year and the wind farm is scheduled to be operational in 2021.
Vineyard Wind LLC, the owner and developer of the project, is a joint venture between Avangrid Renewables and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners.
NOTE: The original article has been updated. As pointed out to us by Grupo Daniel Alonso, Windar is in charge of manufacturing and delivering only the transition pieces for the project, and not the entire foundations, as originally stated and as announced by Iberdrola.
