RES Offshore has signed an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the design and installation of a power performance met mast for the 389 MW West of Duddon Sands Offshore Wind Farm for ScottishPower Renewables and DONG Energy.

The power performance met mast will record weather data to support the construction and operation phases of the wind farm. Once the wind farm is constructed, the power performance met mast will be used for the power curve warranty and wind farm power performance testing.

Located 14 km offshore in the Irish Sea, the met mast lattice tower will be supported by a monopile foundation that will be driven 22 meters into the seabed. The anticipated completion date is mid-2014.

RES Offshore has subcontracted the design and supply of the lattice tower to Carl C A/S. Burntisland Fabrications Ltd. will fabricate the monopile, transition piece and platform at its yard in Arnish, on the Isle of Lewis in northwest Scotland. The transportation and installation activities will be undertaken by GeoSea S.A.
