Teesside firm awarded Hornsea dealTeesside-based Mech-Tool Engineering Ltd (MTE) (www.mechtool.com), a leading supplier of fire and heat hazard solutions, has been awarded a contract by Billingham-based OSB EEW to fabricate 20 suspended internal support structures for the Hornsea One offshore wind farm.

Managing director Anthony Jones said: “It is important to MTE and the industry that Teesside is a key strategic location for the future development of offshore wind in the UK and overseas, and we are firmly committed to continuing to make sure that remains so.”

The contract is the second win this year for MTE on the prestigious wind farm development; it follows the company’s
announcement in February that it would be providing general fabrication of transportation cables.

Expected to be the largest wind farm in the world, Hornsea One is located 120km off the Yorkshire coast. Once completed, it is expected to generate enough electricity to power two million homes.

Due to be completed in 2021, the project will see 174 wind turbines installed and will feature the longest power-line cable route — at 900km.

The OSB contract for OSB is scheduled for completion by MTE later this year.

To date, the latter has provided its fire, blast and heat protection systems to offshore wind farms including both the Dudgeon and Galloper projects.

Be seen in all the right places!
