ODE’s UK Portfolio Broadens with Outer Dowsing Owner’s Engineer Contract Win
International technical service provider Offshore Design Engineering Ltd (ODE) has been selected to deliver Owner’s Engineer support to the pre-FEED stage of Outer Dowsing offshore wind farm in the Southern North Sea.
The 1500MW project will see ODE building upon its extensive track record in the UK offshore wind industry which spans over two decades and Rounds 1 to the current Round 4 of Offshore Wind Leasing.
The Owner’s Engineer contract was awarded to ODE by Outer Dowsing Offshore Wind (ODOW), a joint venture developed by TotalEnergies and Corio Generation, a portfolio company of Macquarie’s Green Investment Group (GIG). When completed, Outer Dowsing Offshore Wind will be one of the largest offshore wind farms in the UK.
As Owner’s Engineer, ODE will conduct concept development and selection for elements such as WTG foundations, onshore and offshore substations, and inter-array cables and will support the definition of the project’s Employer’s Requirements. With current Owner’s Engineer contracts in Ireland, Korea and Vietnam, this award reinforces ODE’s position in the global market as an adaptable, expert technical partner.
Andrew Baker, Managing Director for ODE, commented, “We are looking forward to engaging as Owner’s Engineer on this project. This is a crucial time to deliver offshore wind capacity to the UK energy industry and we are pleased to be achieving this alongside Corio Generation and TotalEnergies, two companies who we have successfully executed energy contracts with in the past.”
David Few, Project Director for Outer Dowsing Offshore Wind added, “We are delighted to have appointed ODE to this important role, bringing their extensive expertise to supplement that of Corio Generation and TotalEnergies, and push forward the project’s engineering strategy.”
