Seajacks Scylla has installed 93 out of the 100 wind turbine jacket foundations at the Moray East wind farm off the Aberdeenshire coast in Scotland, the project’s latest Notice of Operations shows.
The jack-up vessel is transporting the jacket foundations to the project site from Global Energy Group’s site in Nigg. The Seajacks Scylla installed the first jacket at the site located some 22 kilometres offshore at the beginning of July.
The 950 MW Moray East will comprise 100 MHI Vestas 9.5 MW wind turbines and three Siemens Energy offshore transformer modules (OTMs), all installed on jacket foundations. The installation of the OTM jackets and topsides was completed in mid-September.
DEME Group is the EPCI contractor for Moray East’s turbine foundations and the three offshore substation foundations, as well as for the transport and installation of the OTMs. The wind farm is slated for full commissioning in 2022.
The project is being developed by Moray Offshore Windfarm East Ltd (MOWEL), a joint venture company owned by Ocean Winds (56.6%) Diamond Green Limited (33.4%), and CTG (10%).
