The last of 114 wind turbine foundations leave Port of Nigg destined for Seagreen 2The 1075MW Seagreen offshore wind farm has entered the final phases of work after the remaining eight three-legged foundation towers were successfully loaded onto barges at Global Energy Group’s Port of Nigg in the Highlands of Scotland.
Global Port Services, part of Global Energy Group, fulfilled the storage, marshalling and logistics contracts for the 114, 95m-tall foundation towers on the South Quay at the Port of Nigg, with Seaway7 transporting the jackets on barges from the port to site located 27km off the Angus coast.
106 of the jacket substructures have been installed with 79 turbines now erected. The remaining eight foundation jackets loaded out at Nigg will remain on barges until the S7000 vessel returns to the Seagreen site in March following its maintenance outage.
The Seagreen Wind Farm is a joint venture project between SSE Renewables and TotalEnergies and continues to make good progress with vessels on site mobilised to support commissioning of the already installed turbines and the installation of array cables. The project remains on track for completion in summer 2023.
