Macdonald Offshore lands Hornsea One deal

Macdonald Offshore lands Hornsea One deal

Macdonald Offshore and Marine has won a six-figure contract to work on the UK’s largest offshore wind project, based in the North East.

Winning the deal with Tees-based offshore structures giant OSB, Middlesbrough-based Macdonald will supply platforms used within the Hornsea One offshore wind farm.

Having been ratified as qualified suppliers to OSB for the Hornsea wind project, Macdonald’s directors believe there is the potential for more and larger deals worth several million pounds.

Director Steve Macdonald said: “This is fantastic news because it secures our place as part of what is fast becoming a centre of excellence for windfarm manufacture here on Teesside and the wider North-East.

“This initial deal has already secured our long-term future but we’re now quoting for several more packages for significantly larger contracts, opening up potential orders worth millions.

“We’re potentially looking at several years of work that could create 40 more local jobs.”

Situated 120 kilometres off England’s east coast, Hornsea One will consist of up to 174 wind turbines covering approximately 407 square kilometres.

Offshore construction is due to start next year and when completed, it will be capable of powering well over one million homes.

Macdonald director Steve Osbaldeston added: “We’re hopeful that further contracts for major Hornsea projects will also come to the Tees, so there’s phenomenal potential for Teesside’s engineering sector.

“It opens up a whole new avenue for our supply chain, can secure and create local jobs, create apprenticeships and invest in the future of the business.”
