The photo was taken by Matthew Kelly, a site manager from SgurrEnergy, which is responsible for operations and maintenance of ORE Catapult’s 7MW offshore wind turbine in Levenmouth.

In December 2015, ORE Catapult acquired the 7MW demonstration offshore wind turbine from Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI), and then awarded SgurrEnergy with an O&M contract.

The 7MW turbine was installed 50m off the East Fife coast in 2013 for testing related to type certification. ORE Catapult will use the turbine for research and development purposes.
