Navantia Seanergies and Windar will manufacture for Iberdrola 45 monopiles for the East Anglia 3 offshore wind farm. This is the largest contract of this type of foundations for Navantia-Windar to date. The production will take place in Navantia-Windar’s monopiles factory located in the shipyard of Fene (A Coruña).

The order will involve 900,000 hours during 15 months and will start in June 2023, creating around 450 jobs between Navantia, Windar and the collaborating subsidiary industry.

When commissioned in 2026, the farm where the monopiles will be installed will have a generating capacity of 1,400 MW, enough to supply 1.3 million homes with clean energy.

With this new order, Navantia Seanergies-Windar strengthens its leading position in this product line and consolidates a relationship of more than nine years with Iberdrola, which totals contracts worth more than 1,000 million euros, with orders for Iberdrola’s offshore wind farms in the United Kingdom, Germany, France and the United States.

The monopiles will have a maximum length of 84 meters, weigh 1800 tons and have a diameter of 10.6 meters. These foundations belong to the East Anglia 3 wind farm, which is located within the East Anglia Hub in British waters and for which a substation and 42 jackets have already been installed.

This is the largest order for the factory located in Fene, a facility in which Navantia and Windar have invested 36 million euros. The works in this factory have involved the adaptation of a building for bending thick steel plate of up to 16 meters in diameter, new painting cabins and storage areas for finished product, as well as the latest technology equipment required for manufacturing.

“This contract is an important step for the Fene factory and for our participation in the offshore wind energy market, consolidating us as a manufacturer that can build the three types of foundations of an offshore wind farm. Our commitment to green energy is a bet for a more sustainable growth and, at the same time, for the industry of our country” said the president of Navantia, Ricardo Domínguez.

For Orlando Alonso, Executive President of Windar Renovables, “the new factory where this order will be manufactured allows our business alliance to provide a worldwide reference service, of which Iberdrola will be the first to benefit. We are leading global players, we incorporate our own innovations in our plants and we have more than enough capacity to meet the demand from wind farm developers”.
