EDINBURGH  Sarens PSG, a joint venture (JV) between Sarens and PSG Marine & Logistics established in summer 2022, has been selected by Moray West to undertake the marshalling work at Invergordon of all 62 monopiles prior to installation as part of the Moray West offshore wind farm. 

Ocean Winds, created as a 50:50 JV owned by EDP Renewables and ENGIE, is developing the Moray West project.

The monopiles will be the largest and heaviest XXL monopiles ever handled in the UK with weights close to 2,000 tonnes, Sarens PSG said. Offloading and marshalling for storage and loadout of the monopiles will be undertaken by Sarens PSG using their fleet of self-propelled modular transporters.  The monopiles will start to arrive in Invergordon in mid-2023 with installation complete about one year later.

The JV offers an extensive heavy-lift design and implementation capability together with a broad range of transport and logistics support services to customers in the fixed and floating offshore wind market across Scotland.
