Last jackets to leave Dubai and head for the Moray East offshore wind farm
In an important milestone the last jackets for the 950 MW Moray East offshore wind farm were safely loaded onto the heavy lift vessel at Rig Metals LLC (part of Lamprell) in Dubai ready for their onward journey to Europe, under the management of DEME Offshore, the company said in its release.
DEME Offshore was awarded the full EPCI scope for 100 wind turbine foundations plus three offshore substation platform foundations in December 2018. To ensure a timely production flow, DEME Offshore contracted Lamprell for the fabrication of 45 wind turbine foundation jackets and three offshore substation jackets. The remaining 55 jackets were awarded to Smulders, where the works are still ongoing on the fabrication yards in Belgium and Newcastle (UK).
In another key milestone and despite the many challenges brought about by the coronavirus pandemic, DEME Offshore successfully installed the third and final offshore OTM substation on schedule last weekend.
