The first jacket superstructures, destined for the 1.1GW Seagreen project arrived at Port of Nigg in Cromarty Firth, ahead of their upcoming installation in the deep waters of the North Sea, 27km off the Scottish coast near Angus.
The jacket components were welcomed to Global Energy Group’s Port of Nigg by representatives of project owners TotalEnergies and Scottish renewable energy developer SSE Renewables, along with main contractor Seaway 7. The delivery kickstarts the upcoming campaign to install all 114 wind turbine foundations at the offshore project site off the Angus coast, beginning in October. After jacket foundations are installed, Vestas V164-10 MW turbines will be positioned on each of the turbine bases. The foundation installation campaign will last for a period of around 12 months and is supporting up to 141 skilled jobs at Port of Nigg associated with the marshalling, storage, and logistics for the foundation components. SSE Renewables is leading the development and construction of the joint venture project, supported by TotalEnergies, and will operate Seagreen on completion.
