SeAH Wind secures Vattenfall Norfolk Vanguard foundations deal

A wind farm parts maker has secured a “large-scale” contract to support an East Anglian development.

SeAH Wind will supply turbine foundations to the Norfolk Vanguard East and Norfolk Vanguard West schemes.

The company – which is building a manufacturing base at Teesworks, near Redcar – says work on the giant structures will begin in 2026.

The deal follows an agreement announced last year to make and supply turbine foundations for the North Sea-based Hornsea 3 scheme, with work expected to begin in mid-2025.

Seong-Hwal Son, SeAH Wind chief executive, said: “This large-scale order serves as an opportunity to prove our offshore wind power substructure manufacturing technology and competitiveness in the global offshore wind power industry.

“With the production plant being built as the anchor, we aim to become the largest offshore wind power substructure manufacturer in the world.”

Catrin Jung, Vattenfall head of offshore wind, added: “We are delighted to be working with SeAH Wind.

“These projects are vital for net-zero and providing customers with a low-carbon energy system.”
