Tata Steel has secured an order to supply 4,400 tons of structural pipe for the turbine foundations of the ScottishPower Renewables East Anglia One offshore wind farm.
Tata Steel will produce the structural pipe in its Hartlepool SAW Mill facility in UK.
The contract will help to support approximately 130 employees at the facility.
Andy Hill, works manager at Tata Steel’s SAW Mills, said: “We are delighted to be part of the supply chain team in support of the East Anglia One project and look forward to its successful conclusion.
“The growth of the offshore wind market in the UK is a real success story and at Tata Steel in Hartlepool we have developed the products and expertise to successfully deliver into this complex supply chain and help build local content supporting local jobs.”
East Anglia One is a £2.5 billion offshore wind farm, which will generate enough renewable energy to power 500,000 homes per year.
