Fred. Olsen Windcarrier has secured a contract for the transport and installation of turbines at the Moray East offshore wind project in Scotland.
Fred. Olsen Windcarrier is in charge of transporting and installing 100 MHI Vestas V164-9.5MW turbines at the 950MW wind farm located off the East coast of Scotland.
The company will deploy one of the Tern Class vessels for the work and will use the Port of Invergordon as the pre-assembly harbor. Turbine installation is set to commence at the beginning of 2021.
“We have been working with MHI Vestas Offshore Wind on various offshore wind projects over the last years and
during 2018, we installed more than 100 V164 turbines in the North Sea,” said Casper Toft, CCO at Fred.Olsen Windcarrier.
“However, the Moray East contract award is the first installation contract where Fred. Olsen Windcarrier is contracted directly by MHI Vestas Offshore Wind.”
Moray East is located some 22km off the Aberdeenshire coast. Project developer Moray Offshore Windfarm (East) Ltd plans to have the 950MW wind farm fully operational in 2022.
