Siemens Gamesa Moray West Blades

First Siemens Gamesa Blades Ready to Set Sail for Moray West Site Offshore Scotland

The first Siemens Gamesa 108-metre-long wind turbine blades have left its manufacturing factory in Hull for the Moray West offshore wind project in Scotland.

Nine of the 180 blades destined for the 882 MW offshore wind farm were loaded onto the Rotra Mare transporter ship at the Siemens Gamesa blade factory in Hull, and are ready to be transported to the offshore construction site in the Moray Firth, Scotland.

Manufactured in Hull, each blade is 108 metres in length, longer than the pitch at Wembley Stadium.

The Moray West offshore wind project, developed by Ocean Winds, will comprise 60 Siemens Gamesa SG 14-222 DD wind turbines. Cadeler’s Wind Orca will be responsible for the transportation and installation of the units which is planned to start in 2024.

The turbines will be connected to two Siemens Energy offshore substation platforms, offshore transformer modules (OTMs), transferring power generated to an onshore substation and into the national grid.


Located in the Moray Firth in the northeast of Scotland, the offshore wind farm is currently under construction with foundation installation underway.

Moray West is expected to generate its first power this year. Once fully operational, the wind farm will generate enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of more than 1.3 million homes, according to Siemens Gamesa.
