Wood has been awarded the Principal Designer and Pre-FEED scope for Salamander, the 100MW floating wind farm development located 35km off Peterhead in the East Coast of Scotland. The Salamander project is a joint venture between Simply Blue Group, Ørsted and Subsea 7.
Wood will undertake and manage a system level pre-FEED (front-end engineering design) to enable the planning, costing and risk-assessment of a FEED design process. As part of the scope, Wood will manage the interfaces with the foundation designer and provide design services for the subsea and onshore cables as well as grid and onshore electrical connection. The scope also includes wind turbine generator OEM engagement, collation of site data, ports, transport and installation analysis, and O&M strategy and certification. Salamander is intended to be progressed through the innovation track of Crown Estate Scotland’s forthcoming Innovation and Targeted Oil and Gas (INTOG) leasing round. Opening in August 2022, the INTOG round will grant seabed leases through an auction process, which will be split into two pots – one for smaller scale innovation projects of less than 100 MW and one for larger projects linked to oil and gas infrastructure.
