Siemens Gamesa to provide turbines East Anglia Hub: Scottish Power Renewables (SPR) has selected Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) as the favoured wind turbine supplier for the £6.5 billion East Anglia Hub.

The offshore wind compound will carry a overall installed capacity of 3,1GW, sufficient to power the total of over 2.7 million homes.

Over 200 turbines are projected for East Anglia ONE North, TWO, & THREE projects located in the southern North Sea.

The East Anglia Hub plans are expected to serve over 7.5% of the UK’s 40GW goal for offshore wind generation by 2030.

Jonathan Cole, Offshore Managing Director of Iberdrola Renewables, stated: “Offshore wind is now one of the cheapest forms of renewable generation and the approach we’re taking with East Anglia Hub, in conjunction with SGRE, shows just how far the industry has come and how well placed we are to deliver the Government’s 40GW target for offshore wind within the next decade.”

Andreas Nauen, Chief Executive Officer of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, added: “These projects could be significant for many reasons,  including the input that it will make to both the UK’s National Grid and to employment on the east coast of England.”
