Seagreen offshore wind farm fully operational

SSE Renewables Picks Ventus for Seagreen Maintenance Work

UK-based Ventus Energy has been awarded a contract by SSE Renewables to provide maintenance work on transmission assets for the Seagreen offshore wind farm in Scotland.

Throughout the duration of the contract, the company will operate across primary and secondary equipment at the wind farm’s offshore and onshore substations.

In addition to substation asset maintenance, SSE Renewables has included a framework agreement with Ventus to provide senior authorised persons (SAPs) for 66 kV operations.

Furthermore, Ventus Energy’s sister company RTS Wind will also support the contract delivery with mechanical-based maintenance, providing a true turnkey offering. This includes visual inspections of the offshore substation platform and jacket structure, as well as statutory inspections of access ladders, fall arrest systems, and lifting equipment.

“Ventus is a reputable and dependable provider of high voltage services and we value its provision of experienced personnel in both routine and short-notice capacity,” said Mike Fivey, head of asset integrity at SSE Renewables.

“Its support has been pivotal to SSE Renewables early-stage operations of Seagreen’s high voltage systems across turbine and transmission level, and we look forward to continuing to work with them on other offshore sites.”


The contract for Seagreen marks the third project Ventus has embarked on with SSE Renewables, having supported the operator’s Beatrice and Greater Gabbard wind farms since 2021.

Seagreen is Scotland’s largest offshore wind farm and is a joint venture between TotalEnergies and SSE Renewables.

Located around 27 kilometres off the coast of Angus in the North Sea, the project features 114 Vestas V164-10.0 MW wind turbines with permission for up to 150.

The wind farm has been operational since October 2023.
