The reservation agreement signed with the developers secured capacity in Lamprell’s Hamriyah yard for the work.

The base scope of work is for the supply of 62 transition pieces, which includes 60 wind turbine transition pieces and two transition pieces for the two offshore substations, as well as for the shipping of the 62 transition pieces to a marshalling harbour in the UK.

In April, Lamprell selected Pemamek to provide welding production automation solutions for the manufacturing of transition pieces and monopiles.

The order consisted of several different applications to produce cylindrical and conical offshore renewables products on the company’s fabrication lines.

China-based Dajin Heavy Industry will supply the XXL monopile foundations for the offshore wind farm while Siemens Energy and Iemants will provide the project’s two offshore substation platforms.

The Moray West offshore wind farm is located in the Moray Firth, approximately 22.5 kilometres from the Caithness coastline.

The development will be comprised of 60 Siemens Gamesa 14.7 MW wind turbine generators with an installed capacity of 882 MW.

Moray West recently secured a Contract for Difference (CfD) as part of the UK Government’s latest CfD Allocation Round.
