Construction of the Seagreen offshore wind farm has reached a new milestone as over 50 of the jacket foundation substructures have now been installed. The three-legged jacket foundations each weigh approximately 2,000 tonnes.
SSE Renewables is leading the development and construction of the Seagreen project and will operate Seagreen on completion for its expected 25-year lifetime. Installation of the foundations is being carried out by Aberdeen-based Seaway 7. When complete, Seagreen will consist of 114 Vestas V164-10.0 MW turbines, the first of which started generating power to the UK national grid last week. Situated around 27km off the Angus coast, the £3bn wind farm is a joint venture between SSE Renewables (49%) and TotalEnergies (51%).
