E.ON has awarded TAG Energy Solutions a contract to manufacture 16 monopiles and transition pieces for E.ON's Humber Gateway offshore wind farm.

Preparation work for the manufacturing of the 16 60-meter-long, 650-metric-ton monopiles, as well as the associated transition pieces, will begin immediately at TAG Energy Solutions' production facility, located on the banks of the River Tees.

The first steel is expected to arrive in March, and the contract should be completed by the fourth quarter of this year.

E.ON's 736 million British pound Humber Gateway wind farm - situated 8 km off the Yorkshire Coast, close to the mouth of the Humber Estuary - will consist of 73 turbines that will generate up to 219 MW of electricity. Construction on the project is under way and is expected to be completed in 2015.
