Humber Gateway substation in place

UK: MPI Offshore has completed the installation of the offshore electrical substation at the 219MW Humber Gateway wind project.

The substation is now in place at the Humber Gateway project

The contractor used its MPI Adventure jack-up vessel to install the two 450-tonne topside modules on the 570-tonne jacket foundation it had installed at an earlier date.

The loading of the components was undertaken from multiple ports, and involved a number of subcontractors, such as drillers, grouters, scaffolders, welders and painters.

E.on is developing the Humber Gateway project eight kilometres off England's north east coast. In September it announced that a third of the 73 Vestas V112-3MW turbines had been installed at the site. It is due to come online in 2015.
