Beatrice Turbines One Third Done

Source: BOWL

A third of wind turbines has now been installed on the 588MW Beatrice offshore wind farm in the Outer Moray Firth, Scotland, Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Limited (BOWL) said.

Swire Blue Ocean’s jack-up vessel Pacific Orca has so far installed 28 out of 84 Siemens Gamesa 7MW wind turbines at the site some 13km off the Caithness coast. The first turbine was installed mid-July and the wind farm delivered the first power several days thereafter.

The turbines are loaded in sets of five at the Nigg port, Siemens Gamesa’s pre-assembly base. The commissioning of the turbines is carried out immediately after the installation.

The full commissioning of the wind farm is scheduled for Spring 2019.

BOWL, the developer of the GBP 2.6 billion project, is a joint venture partnership between SSE (40%), Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (35%) and Red Rock Power Limited (25%).
