Vestas Picks ASCO for Shipping Services on World’s Deepest Fixed-Bottom Offshore Wind Farm

Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has selected integrated logistics and materials management company ASCO to provide shipping services on the Seagreen offshore wind farm in Scotland.

The deal will see ASCO’s ship agency Seletar provide services including crew transfer to the operations of the project, initially during the construction phase, from Montrose port.

The project is the latest renewables contract win for ASCO, which has also delivered work on the Hywind, Kincardine, and Moray East projects, the company said.

“Vestas has an agreement with Seletar to provide all shipping agent services for the commissioning and completion phase of the Seagreen offshore wind farm. Vestas look forward to continuing the relationship established on previous projects and together contributing to the continued growth of renewable energy in the region,” said Paul Grant, Offshore Commissioning Project Manager for Vestas.

Located 27 kilometres off the coast of Angus, the Seagreen offshore wind farm will become the largest offshore wind farm in Scotland and the world’s deepest fixed-bottom offshore wind farm.

Vestas is supplying 114 of their V164-10 MW wind turbines which will provide approximately 1.1 GW of green power annually.
