2H Wins Moray West Integrity Management Contract

Business & Finance

UK-headquartered 2H has been awarded a four-year integrity management (IM) contract for the 882 MW Moray West offshore wind farm in Scotland.

The contract’s scope covers IM for all balance of plant (BoP) equipment, including the wind turbine’s monopile foundations and tower structures, inter-array and export cables, and offshore and onshore substations.

According to 2H, the company will develop and implement integrity plans for the structural and electrical equipment at the site, aiming to optimise operating costs and preserve the condition of the assets.

The firm’s engineering office in Aberdeen, the UK, along with its IM division, Clarus, will execute the project. The wind farm will benefit from Clarus’ proprietary digital IM software, iCUE, which will facilitate operational data management and visualisation of system health.

“2H and Clarus have two decades of experience managing long-term integrity programmes for offshore structures, and we believe that all stakeholders will greatly benefit from our structured, risk-based approach to IM, gaining better visibility of key risks and the ability to address integrity issues during operations,” said Ricky Thethi, Global Director at 2H.

The Moray West offshore wind project, developed by Ocean Winds, is located approximately 22.5 kilometres from the Caithness coastline.

The wind farm will feature 60 Siemens Gamesa’s SG 14-222 DD wind turbines. Supplied with “Power Boost”, each turbine can generate up to 14.7 MW output.

Last month, DEME Group’s vessel Apollo completed the installation of all transition pieces, and the wind turbines are currently being installed by Cadeler’s jack-up vessel Wind Orca.

The 882 MW offshore wind farm is expected to generate its first power this year and to be fully operational in 2025. 

Once commissioned, Moray West will be able to meet the electricity requirements of about 650,000 households in Scotland for 25 years.
