Navacel Completes Hywind Scotland Run

The final tower sections for Statoil's 30MW Hywind Scotland floating wind farm have left Navacel's facility in Bilbao and have been delivered to the assembly base in Norway.

Statoil awarded Navacel with a contract to supply five towers which will support the Siemens 6MW turbines installed on SPAR floating foundations some 25 kilometres off Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

Navacel shipped out the first tower components for the project in early March.

Each tower is divided into four sections which will be assembled at NorSea Group’s Stordbase AS in Norway prior to heading to the installation site.

The turbine towers have a height of 83 metres with a diameter of 7.5 metres at the base and 4.2 metres at the top, where the turbines will be installed. The weight of each tower is 620 tons.

The towers and the turbines will be mounted on the SPAR floating units in water depths of between 90 and 120 metres and distributed across an area of four square kilometres.

The EUR 200 million Hywind project is scheduled for commissioning in 2017.
