SeAH Wind secures first Teesside plant deal

A wind farm parts maker has secured a first “monumental” contract from its new Teesside factory.

SeAH Wind, which is building a plant on the Teesworks development, will supply turbine foundations to the North Sea-based Hornsea 3 scheme.

Bosses say the agreement represents a significant milestone, revealing it is “the single largest offshore wind foundations order secured by any UK company so far”.

The manufacturer was supported on the deal by law firm Womble Bond Dickinson.

A team from the company’s construction and engineering division, led by senior counsel Stephen Hands and partner Vicky McCombe, advised SeAH on the contract.

David Jack, SeAH Wind’s sales and business development team manager, said: “We’re very grateful to Stephen and Vicky, and the rest of the team for all their hard work and commitment to this project.

“Their ability to advise us on the many complex issues in this transaction in an approachable and straightforward manner throughout was incredibly helpful.”



Peter Snaith, head of Womble Bond Dickinson’s Teesside practice and manufacturing sector team [pictured, above], added: “This deal demonstrates increased confidence in UK renewables and supports our belief that Teesside is a prime location for inward investors across a range of industries.”

Work on the foundations – also known as monopiles – is expected to begin in mid-2025, with production earmarked for completion a year later.
