Moray East Transition Pieces Being Made Under Andalusian Sun
- Wind Farm Update
Spain’s Tecade has won a contract to manufacture 20 transition pieces (TPs) for the 950MW Moray East offshore wind project in Scotland.
The EUR 12.7 million contract has been secured through Navantia and through Nervión Industries, the company said.
Work on the units has already started at Tecade’s plant in the Port of Seville. Tecade is the first company located in the South of Spain to win a contract to manufacture TPs.
Belgium’s Smulders awarded Navantia with a contract to manufacture and deliver 20 upper jackets for the project. Smulders is in charge of manufacturing and delivering a total of 55 turbine jacket foundations.
The UAE-based Lamprell has already started working on the remaining 45 turbine jackets. Lamprell will also manufacture and deliver three jacket foundations for the wind farm’s offshore substations.
Currently under construction, the Moray East wind farm will comprise 100 MHI Vestas 9.5MW turbines installed some 22 kilometres off the Aberdeenshire coast and scheduled to be fully operational in 2022.
