Developers of the Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm have appointed Northern Marine Services (NMS) to support the delivery and installation of the project’s offshore wind turbine foundations out of Port of Nigg in Scotland’s Cromarty Firth.
The awarding of the contract follows the announcement in February that Global Energy Group’s (GEG) Port of Nigg has been selected as the marshalling, storage and logistics base for the 114 wind turbine foundations which are destined for the 1,075 MW offshore wind farm being constructed in Scotland’s Firth of Forth.
Seagreen’s foundation and inter-array cable engineering, procurement, construction and installation contractor, Seaway 7, appointed the Port of Nigg on behalf of development partners SSE Renewables and TotalEnergies. Under the new support contract, NMS will work on-site at Port of Nigg on behalf of Seagreen to oversee the marshalling and installation works being carried out on the 114 turbine structures. The Seagreen client representatives will liaise with Subsea 7 on site and have oversight of load-ins and load-outs of the wind turbine foundations and site activities.
The 1,075MW Seagreen project is located 27km off the coast of Angus in the North Sea and is a £ 3 billion joint venture between TotalEnergies (51%) and SSE Renewables (49%).
