The work is planned to be done on four potential wind turbines that might need repair and will be taking place until 3 March.

According to AIS information available online, Wind Orca was still at the Seagreen offshore wind farm, being built off the Scottish southeast coast, at the end of the last month.

The 950 MW Moray East offshore wind farm, all of whose wind turbines have been spinning off the northeast coast of Scotland since the beginning of last year, features 100 Vestas V164-9.5MW units.

Moray East is currently the largest operational offshore wind farm in Scotland, a title that will soon be taken over by the 1.1 GW Seagreen.
