Seaway7 has installed the final wind turbine foundation on Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm, off the coast of Angus, Scotland. The 114th jacket foundation was successfully installed late afternoon on Thursday by the Saipem 7000 crane vessel, which was used to lift each of the 2,000-tonne foundations into place.
As the main contractor, Seaway7 has managed the engineering, procurement, construction, and installation of the wind turbine generator foundations and is installing approximately 300km of associated inner-array cables. Each foundation will support a Vestas V164-10 MW turbine. When complete, the 1.1GW wind farm will be capable of generating around 5,000 GWh of renewable energy annually. Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm is a joint venture between SSE Renewables and TotalEnergies.
