Lamprell Dispatches First Batch of Transition Pieces for Moray West

The first batch of transition pieces (TPs) for the Moray West offshore wind farm have sailed out of Lamprell’s Hamriyah yard in UAE and are on their way to a marshalling harbour in the UK.

“I want to congratulate the project team and thank our client for their trust in Lamprell as we underwent both commissioning the renewables production line and constructing the first set of transition pieces for the Moray West offshore wind farm. This accomplishment marks a significant milestone for Lamprell and the entire renewables industry,” said Ian Prescott, Lamprell CEO.

“Not only is our production line a first-of-its-kind facility in the Middle East, but the transition pieces – in terms of diameter – are a unique and original product type designed to withstand the harshest offshore conditions while maximising energy production.”

The offshore construction and fabrication specialist signed a contract with the wind farm’s developers, Ocean Winds, in September 2022.

Under the contract, Lamprell will supply 62 transition pieces, which include 60 wind turbine TPs and two TPs for the two offshore substations.

“I am extremely proud of this achievement and look forward to successfully delivering the rest of the transition pieces throughout 2023,” said Prescott.

The units will arrive at the Port of Nigg which was selected as the location for marshalling all 62 TPs prior to installation as part of the 882 MW Moray West offshore wind farm.

Global Energy Group will provide pre-assembly support services for the marshalling of all the units at the Scottish port.

The TPs will be installed on top of monopiles that will be delivered by Dajin Heavy Industry as well as Navantia Seanergies and Windar Renovables consortium.

At the beginning of this month, the first XXL monopile was installed at the offshore construction site some 22.5 kilometres from the Caithness coastline.


The Moray West offshore wind farm, developed and majority-owned by Ocean Winds, with Lithuania’s Ignitis Group holding a minority share in the project, will feature 60 Siemens Gamesa 14.7 MW wind turbines.

Once fully completed, the project is expected to meet the power requirements of about 650,000 households in Scotland for the next 25 years.
