Hutchinson Engineering Wins Moray East Contract

Granada Handling has contracted Hutchinson Engineering for davit crane fabrication for the Moray East offshore wind farm in the UK.

Granada Material Handling secured a contract by Engie Fabricom in March to provide davit cranes for the substations of the Moray East and Triton Knoll offshore wind projects.

Shortly after, the UK company won a contract to provide 100 davit crane units for the turbine jacket foundations of the Moray East project.

According to Granada, the cranes are specifically designed for the 950MW wind farm and its marine environment and will be delivered over a six-month period.

The Moray East offshore wind farm will comprise 100 MHI Vestas 9.5MW turbines installed some 22km off the Aberdeenshire coast.

Project developer Moray Offshore Windfarm (East) Ltd plans to have the wind farm fully operational in 2022.
