Moray East Turbine Jackets Halfway There

50 out of 100 wind turbine jacket foundations have been installed at the Moray East wind farm offshore Scotland.

Chartered by DEME Group, the jack-up vessel Seajacks Scylla installed the wind farm’s 50th turbine jacket foundation at the site some 22 kilometres off the Aberdeenshire coast on Monday, 26 October, the project’s latest Notice of Operations shows.

Seajacks Scylla is transporting the jacket foundations to the installation site from Global Energy Group’s site in Nigg. The jack-up 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.

The third and final OTM was installed at the site in mid-September.

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%).
