RES has announced its partnership with ScottishPower Renewables. As an HV contractor, RES will implement ScottishPower Renewables’ electrical and mechanical safety rules as the primary switching authority until the operational handover to the Operations and maintenance (O&M) provider.
RES will handle the setup and operation of a control centre service while collaborating with various contractors, including those from Suffolk, to facilitate project completion, bolstering local economic investment and job opportunities.
“We’re delighted to be awarded a defining contract for East Anglia Three”, said Simon Deacon, Operations and Maintenance Director for RES in the UK&I. “After launching our in-house HV team just last year, a successful agreement like this is a testament to the quality, capability, and dedication of our unique HV renewables service, an essential element of many operational contracts in a growing industry. This new contract follows the launch of the Offshore Wind O&M Partnership (OWOP) between RES and three other complementary offshore O&M service providers. The Partnership will fill the much-needed gap for a ‘one-stop shop’ for all core O&M services.”
RES’ HV team was founded in 2022 to help the broader industry, seeking high-quality, safety-focused, renewables HV service. Since then, the company has delivered several solar, storage, onshore wind and offshore transmission projects with an experienced and substantial O&M division behind them.
The ScottishPower Renewables East Anglia Hub will deliver a combined installed capacity of 3.6 GW, with East Anglia Three accounting for 1.4 GW of this capacity powered by 95 turbines over 250 metres high. The HV work on East Anglia Three may start in Q1 2024 and be completed by Q1 2027.
