E.ON has awarded Harland and Wolff Heavy Industries Ltd. a contract for the design and fabrication of the Humber Gateway offshore wind farm substation jacket.

E.ON is developing the 219 MW offshore wind farm, located 8 km off the East Yorkshire coast in the U.K. Harland and Wolff, whose scope of work comprises the design and fabrication of the substation jacket and piles, says the jacket will be ready for installation in the first quarter of 2014.

"Harland and Wolff enjoy a great working relationship with E.ON, having worked previously on the Robin Rigg offshore wind farm together,” says Harland and Wolff CEO Robert J. Cooper. "We're looking forward to continuing to develop this relationship."

The Humber Gateway is due to be complete in 2015.
