The first of 100 9.5 MW turbines has been installed in the Moray East offshore wind farm in Scotland by MHI Vestas, using Global Energy’s facility at the Port of Nigg in North East Scotland as its onshore pre-assembly port. 

In December, Moray East announced the completion of its jacket installation - with 100 three-legged steel foundations installed on the sea-bed. The Moray East offshore wind farm will have a capacity of 950MW and is currently being installed in the Moray Firth in Scotland with its closest point being 22km from shore. Turbine components have been arriving in the Moray Firth, where they have been stored and preserved onshore.

Moray East’s WTG Package Manager Ewan Watson said: “A turbine is the most iconic representation of the new offshore wind industry, and I am delighted to issue images of Moray East’s first turbine, a proudly towering 200m representation of engineering success against some of the most challenging circumstances the world has known."

Moray East’s Head of Construction Enrique Alvarez Cordobes said: “This demanded precision engineering with massive components, requiring excellent co-operation and co-ordination between a range of companies both on land and at sea, and I would like to offer my thanks and congratulations to all those who have made this most distinctive and visible milestone possible.“   

Moray East’s Project Director, Marcel Sunier said: “Moray East is the country’s largest infrastructure project, and a massive amount of effort – represented by tonnes of steel and kilometres of cable – much of this below ground or sea - have been required to get us to this point.
I am delighted to be able to announce one of the project’s most visible and distinctive milestones – the safe and successful installation of our first wind turbine. This is a truly amazing team effort considering the circumstances under which the teams had to work to achieve that important milestone. The resilience and good co-operation was one of the key factors in achieving this. I am looking forward to see the remaining 99 wind turbines being installed safely and successfully during the forthcoming months and wish to thank all those involved in making this happen.”
