Atkins will help PowerChina Huadong Engineering (HDEC) with ground engineering and structural work for the substation and jacket foundation, the firm said.

"This project is a tremendous opportunity for international collaboration that will benefit the evolution of offshore wind expertise and help ensure the industry continues to grow as a reliable source of energy," said Atkins' market lead for offshore engineering, Andy Thompson.

"In line with our strategic ambitions to expand our offshore wind business into new areas, our first step into China working with SPIC and HDEC is an exciting one," Thompson added.

Aktins previously designed XL foundations for Statoil's Dudgeon project and the substations for Dong Energy's Burbo Bank Extension and Race Bank offshore projects, all in the UK.
