Vestas, KBR Halliburton Team Up for Wind Farm

July 28, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] Wind Power certainly isn’t the first thing that comes to mind at the mention of Halliburton and their subsidiary KBR — more commonly associated with large Iraq reconstruction contracts — but nonetheless, they will be key development component to an upcoming offshore wind farm. Vestas Wind Systems and KBR Halliburton were selected to build a 90 MW offshore wind farm in the UK. The project, called “Barrow,” was awarded by Barrow Offshore Wind (BOW). The project is a complete turnkey project comprising 30 V90-3.0 MW wind turbines, transportation, installation, foundations, offshore infrastructure, VestasOnline remote monitoring system, Condition Monitoring system as well as operation and maintenance in the first five years. The order value for Vestas is approximately EUR 110 million (US$132 million). The project is scheduled for completion in 2005 and will be located in the Irish Sea 7 km off Walney Island near Barrow-in-Furness at a water depth of 21-23 meters.
