Final Five Turbines Embark for Beatrice

Swire Blue Ocean’s jack-up vessel Pacific Orca has loaded the last five Siemens Gamesa 7MW turbines destined for the Beatrice offshore wind farm.

Pacific Orca has been picking up the turbines in sets of five at the Nigg port, Siemens Gamesa’s pre-assembly base, and installing them at the site 13km off the Caithness coast in the UK.

According to Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Limited (BOWL), 75 out of the total 84 turbines have been commissioned.

The commissioning works are carried out using a combination of walk-to-work vessel Island Crown and crew transfer vessels Fob Swath 3 and Seacat Resolute.

Beatrice delivered first power in July last year, shortly after Pacific Orca installed the first turbine at the project site. The 588MW offshore wind farm is expected to be completed this spring.
