EEW will also produce 208 piles for Seaway Heavy Lifting, which is the main contractor for the offshore wind project.
Six facilities in Germany, Korea and the Netherlands will be involved in the manufacturing, the fabricator said
The assembly of the first pipes started in mid-August and the first deliveries are planned for this month. The piles will be produced through to October, EEW said.
