Smulders has completed the load-out of the first two jackets for Moray East offshore wind farm at its facility in Newcastle upon Tyne.
The jackets are going to the port of Nigg, which was chosen as the foundations staging port for the construction of the offshore wind farm.
According to Smulders, the installation of the jackets will take place shortly at the project site located 22 km off the Caithness coast.
The company will deliver 55 wind turbine jacket foundations for the project from its facility in Newcastle, with the remaining 45 being delivered by Lamprell from its Sharjah and Hamriyah yards in the United Arab Emirates.
The Moray East offshore wind farm is the second of three wind farms in the area and will consist of 100 wind turbines, providing an overall generating capacity of 950 megawatts – enough to power 950,000 homes.
The wind farm is scheduled to start operating by 2022.
