Firth Steels has secured a significant contract to provide profiled steel for SeAH Wind's pioneering £650 million monopile manufacturing facility at Teesworks in the United Kingdom. The company is set to deliver approximately 200,000 square meters of profiled steel, which will be utilized in constructing the roof and wall covering of the half-mile-long monopile facility – the first of its kind in the UK.
Manufacturing of the external building envelope is underway at Firth Steels' state-of-the-art facility in West Yorkshire, marking a crucial milestone in the project's progress. The installation of the first sections signals tangible progress in the development of the 40-meter-tall SeAH factory, which is poised to annually produce up to 200 monopiles.
James Firth, Managing Director of Firth Steels, expressed pride in the company's pivotal role in the SeAH Wind project, emphasizing their commitment to advancing the wind energy sector. Firth stated, “Crowning our commitment to Teesworks, Firth Steels is honored to play a pivotal role in the £650 million SeAH Wind project, supplying a profiled steel building envelope for the world's largest monopile facility.”
The collaboration between Firth Steels and SeAH Wind not only expands the former's operational footprint but also underscores their dedication to fostering economic prosperity and innovation in Northern manufacturing.
Martin Corney, CEO of Teesworks, emphasized the rapid progress of the SeAH Wind facility and praised the quality of profiled steel provided by Firth Steels as a significant step forward in the development process. Corney stated, “The development of the SeAH Wind facility is now progressing at a rapid pace, and the high-quality profiled steel provided by Firth Steels is another step forward in this process.”
