Granada win multimillion-pound contract with DONG Energy for Hornsea Project One – the world’s biggest wind farm
Granada is the latest UK firm to sign a contract with DONG Energy for Hornsea Project One. With a capacity of over one gigawatt, Hornsea Project One will be capable of supplying power to well over one million homes from its base 120km off the Yorkshire coast.
Each of the 7MW turbines will require a davit crane and Granada will assemble and test all 174 davits at their Rochdale facility. With a lifting capacity of one tonne, each crane weighs approximately 3000kgs. Fixed to the foundation platform next to the turbine tower, the Granada davits will help lift parts and tools from the crew transfer vessels to the turbines.
