EDINBURGH, UK — The first of the 62 transition pieces for the 882-MW Moray West offshore wind farm has reached Port of Nigg in the Cromarty Firth in northeast Scotland.
Ocean Winds, a joint venture between ENGIE and EDP Renewables, is developing Moray West.
According to Nigg operator Global Energy Group (GEG), the 62 transition pieces will be delivered under a rolling program, with the group providing pre-assembly support for craneage, logistics, mounting ancillary equipment, and inspection and repair.
All 62 transition pieces will be installed on monopile foundations, which are currently being marshalled from the Port of Cromarty Firth. Following installation of the monopile foundations and transition pieces, the Siemens Gamesa 14.7-MW turbines will be placed onto each of the turbine bases.
