Global Energy Group to Provide Marshalling Services for Moray West
Moray West, an offshore wind farm in the Outer Moray Firth, Scotland, has selected Global Energy Group (GEG) to provide pre-assembly support services for the marshalling of all 62 transition pieces (TPs) at the Port of Nigg.
The transition pieces, supplied by Lamprell, will start to arrive at the Port of Nigg later this year with installation starting shortly afterward and due for completion in 2024, GEG said.
The major contract encompasses a broad range of onsite services including craneage, logistics, mounting ancillary equipment, and inspection and repair support, which will be completed prior to installation of the TPs.
GEG said that securing this contract will support a number of jobs within the company as well as creating new roles onsite at the Port of Nigg.
“We are delighted to be chosen by Moray West to execute these services for their exciting development. Having successfully supported three previous offshore wind projects from the Port of Nigg, including Moray East, our team is very much looking forward to welcoming Ocean Winds back to site,” said Charlie Morrison, Operations Director at GEG and Port of Nigg.
This latest project award follows the recent announcements that the Port of Nigg will be used by Siemens Gamesa for the marshalling and pre-assembly of Moray West’s wind turbines, as well as GEG’s Fabrication Division securing the production of two J-tube frames as key elements of the foundation structures.
The Scottish offshore wind farm will feature 60 Siemens Gamesa 14.7 MW wind turbines and two offshore substations, all installed on monopile foundations.
The first XXL monopile is already installed at the offshore construction site, located some 22.5 kilometers from the Caithness coastline.
The 882 MW Moray West offshore wind farm is being developed and majority-owned by Ocean Winds, with Lithuania’s Ignitis Group holding a minority share in the project.
