Darlington based DeepOcean will transport and install cables for Dong Energy's Hornsea Project One development
Darlington based DeepOcean has secured a contract to support what is claimed to be the world's largest offshore wind farm.
Bosses say the agreement, described as a multi-million pound contract, will support around 150 North-East jobs.
DeepOcean, which also operates a marine site in South Bank, near Middlesbrough, has previously acted for Dong on its Race Bank and Walney Extension projects.
He said: “We are delighted to be further developing our relationship with Dong Energy.
“We have invested heavily in class-leading installation and trenching technology with a strong focus on both safety and productivity.
“This award will safeguard 150 jobs in Darlington and the surrounding area as well as enabling us to offer significant opportunities to the UK supply chain.”
Last week, The Northern Echo reported how Triton would become DeepOcean’s largest shareholder, with bosses saying the new owner will support the company’s growth in the coming years.
Dong says Hornsea Project One, based 75 miles off the Yorkshire coast, will be capable of supplying electricity to more than one million homes.
