Fathom Enters Offshore Wind Picture with Beatrice Contract

Fathom Systems has won a contract to supply a turnkey service of design engineering, procurement and manufacture of specialist electrical distribution equipment to be installed in each of the 84 turbine transition pieces intended for the 588MW Beatrice offshore wind farm.

The scope of supply for the GBP 2.6 billion wind farm project located off the coast of North East Scotland in the Outer Moray Firth is scheduled for delivery throughout Q1 and Q2 2017. The contract will be carried out by Fathom Systems Electrical Services Division.

The contract, signed with three clients contracted to supply jacket structures for the project, marks the company’s entry into the offshore renewable energy market.

The 75-metre, 1,035-ton jacket structures are currently being assembled by Bladt IndustriesBiFab, and Smulders.

The Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Ltd. (BOWL), the owner and developer of the wind farm, is a joint venture partnership between SSE – Scottish & Southern Energy (40%), CIP – Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (35%) and Red Rock Power Ltd. (25%).

The wind farm is being developed with a tier 1 supply chain comprising Seaway Heavy Lifting, Subsea 7, Nexans and Siemens. The 84-turbine facility is scheduled to be fully operational by 2019.

The wind farm will be supported onshore from a new GBP 10m operations and maintenance facility in Wick, where equipment will be transported in and out of field, as well as the main transmission works in Moray, construction of which commenced in 2016.
