Quarter of Moray East Turbine Foundations In

Jack-up vessel Seajacks Scylla has installed 25 out of the 100 wind turbine jacket foundations at the 950 MW Moray East wind farm offshore Scotland.

Chartered by DEME Group, Seajacks Scylla installed the 25th jacket foundation at the site some 22 kilometres off the Aberdeenshire coast on 29th August, according to the project’s latest Notice of Operations.

The jack-up has since installed the third and final jacket foundation for the wind farm’s Offshore Transformer Modules (OTMs). Two of the OTM topsides have so far been installed with the third and the final topside expected to arrive at the installation site soon.

Seajacks Scylla is transporting the jacket foundations to the installation site from Global Energy Group’s site in Nigg. The vessel installed the wind farm’s first foundation at the beginning of July.

The jacket foundations will support 100 MHI Vestas 9.5 MW wind turbines scheduled to be fully operational in 2022.

DEME is the EPCI contractor for Moray East’s turbine foundations and the three offshore substation foundations, as well as for the transport and installation of the OTMs.

Moray East is being developed by Moray Offshore Windfarm East Ltd (MOWEL), a joint venture company owned by Ocean Winds (56.6%) Diamond Green Limited (33.4%), and CTG (10%).
