Ramboll Completes Studies for Fred. Olsen Seawind and Vattenfall’s Scottish Project

Ramboll has concluded several engineering and advisory studies for Fred. Olsen Seawind and Vattenfall, shareholders of the Muir Mhòr (initially named Mara Mhòr) floating offshore wind project, located off the east coast of Scotland.

Ramboll has been involved in the floating offshore wind farm since March 2023, performing feasibility studies related to the mooring and anchor design to inform the next project phases.

In addition, the company has been working on floating foundation-related screening and engineering studies to support the understanding of the site and project conditions and its implications on the floating foundation selection in later project phases.

“Muir Mhòr’s deep-water conditions are challenging, but well-suited to floating turbine technology enabling it to be amongst the world’s first commercial scale floating wind projects. That’s why we are extremely excited to be part of the project at an early stage and support our client with our in-depth knowledge of floating foundations in order to inform early decision-making and support de-risking of upcoming project phases,” said Denis Matha, Global head of Floating Wind at Ramboll.

In June 2023, the UK-headquartered EGS Survey carried out a geophysical and environmental survey campaign along the export cable corridor for the Muir Mhòr floating offshore wind project.
