The work was carried out by Cadeler’s wind farm installation vessel Wind Orca, which replaced its sister vessel Wind Osprey in April 2022.

Many of the wind turbines are installed in a water depth of more than 55 metres, while the deepest water where a unit was installed has been 59 metres, according to Cadeler.

Once fully operational, the Seagreen project, owned by TotalEnergies and SSE Renewables, will reach almost 1.6 GW.

76 of the 114 Vestas V164-10.0 MW turbines are now energised at the site, which is located 27 kilometres from the Angus coast.

The units are now producing more than two-thirds of Seagreen’s full capacity power to the grid.

Once completed, Seagreen will be Scotland’s largest offshore wind farm and will be capable of generating around 5,000 GWh of renewable energy annually – enough renewable electricity to power more than 1.6 million UK homes.

‚ÄúThis latest project milestone further underlines the hard work by everyone involved in the project. The teams, including Vestas, operator of the Orca, Cadeler and our wind turbine marshalling team at Port of Nigg should be proud of what they have achieved. We will now continue with the commissioning of the final turbines and progress with the inter array cabling works”, said John Hill, Seagreen’s Project Director.

SSE Renewables continues to lead the development and construction of the Seagreen project and will operate the project on completion for the wind farm’s expected 25-year lifetime.
