Siemens has selected Smulders to build the three Offshore Transformer Modules (OTMs) for the 950MW Moray East offshore wind farm.
As reported earlier, Siemens won the contract to connect the Moray East offshore wind farm to the Scottish grid.
Siemens’ contract covers all necessary components, including the three OTMs, an onshore substation, and the installation of a 30km underground export cable to the onshore substation at New Deer in Aberdeenshire.
This will be the first project to use three OTMs which will be linked together to cover the rated capacity of the wind farm.
The wind farm will comprise 100 MHI Vestas 9.5MW wind turbines installed some 22 kilometers off the Aberdeenshire coast.
Back in November, Siemens awarded the Smulders – ENGIE Fabricom consortium with a contract to build two OTMs for the 860MW Triton Knoll offshore wind farm in the UK.
