Iberdrola and Navantia alliance will supply clean energy to 1.3 million homes

In just a few weeks, Fen Shipyards will begin construction of Iberdrola, the 45 monopiles for the East Anglia 3 offshore wind farm in United Kingdom waters. This is the largest contract ever for this type of foundation for Navantia-Winder. The order will mean 900,000 hours of work for 15 months through June and will create around 450 jobs between Navantia, Vindar and allied ancillary industry. When commissioned in 2026, the park where the monopiles will be installed will have a generating capacity of 1,400 megawatts, enough to supply 1.3 million homes with clean energy.

The maximum length of the monopiles will be 84 metres, weight 1800 tonnes and diameter 10.6 metres. This is the largest order ever for the factory located in Fayne, a facility in which Navantia and Winder have invested €36 million. Actions at this factory included the adaptation of a warehouse for bending thick sheet metal up to 16 meters in diameter, new painting booths and storage areas for finished products, as well as the state-of-the-art equipment needed for fabrication.

The industry of the Cantabrian coast, from Galicia to Asturias, is establishing itself among the industrial elite of Europe. In particular, in the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, where the most prosperous European offshore industry develops thanks to monopiles, foundations and metal structures built by Galician and Asturian companies.

The Electric Company’s alliances with Navantia in Ferrol, and Winder in Asturias have allowed the Electric Company to manufacture the most important parts in its offshore wind projects from these two areas of the Cantabrian coast that the Electric Company has in Germany, France. or the United Kingdom. Winkinger (Germany), Saint Briquet (France) or East Anglia (United Kingdom) offshore wind farms originate in northern Spain. In this way, Galicia, Asturias and the Basque Country, through Iberdrola, lead the way in manufacturing the most innovative components in offshore construction.

Also participating in this offshore wind farm is the Basque company Hygeia Wind, with whom Iberdrola recently signed an agreement in excess of 200 million euros for Hygeia Bilbao to supply 50 monopiles to the East Anglia Three offshore wind farm in the United Kingdom. Signed. The Electric Company, a British subsidiary of Scottish Power, from its facilities in the port of Biscay.

The Saint Brecht offshore wind farm in the French country is another example of the strength of the industry on the coast of the Cantabrian Sea. 40% of the offshore wind platforms that will support the wind turbines are manufactured by Navantia in Fene.

The contract for the construction of Saint-Brieuc – valued at €350 million – is the largest commission ever executed by the consortium of Navantia and Winder in offshore wind energy. The project has created 1,250 direct jobs in Fayne and Aviles.

In addition, Navantia-Winder has opened a plant in Brest, France, where intermediate platforms for 186 stubbing and transition pieces are manufactured, as well as lattice structures for 34 of the park’s 62 structures, creating 250 jobs. Have done
