Denmark's leading contractor MT Højgaard has won two orders for offshore wind turbine foundations for the UK with a combined value of more than DKK 1 bn (USD 180 m). One of the orders was placed by the British energy group Centrica, and comprises 54 foundations for the Lynn and Inner Dowsing Offshore Wind Farms off the coast of Lincolnshire on Britain's east coast.
 
Alan Thomson, renewables projects and operations manager of Centrica says: "We chose MT Højgaard because they meet all our technical requirements and could also document that they keep to tight schedules in demanding projects. It is clear that they have solid experience in constructing offshore wind turbine foundations, and we look forward to continuing the good collaboration."
 
The foundations for the Lynn and Inner Dowsing projects are steel piles with a diameter of 4.7 metres, which will be driven 20 metres down into the rocky seabed.
 
The second order is for 62 wind turbine foundations for the Robin Rigg offshore wind turbine park, which will be located in the Solway Firth between England and Scotland.
 
MT Højgaard is headquartered in Søborg near Copenhagen and employs 5,000 people. In 2006, the company generated revenues of DKK 11 bn (USD 2 bn). Former offshore wind turbine projects include Horns Rev in Denmark, and Kentish Flats and Burbo Bank in the UK. The news was reported by professional journal Ingeniøren (The Engineer).
