Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm: installation milestone reached

The world’s deepest fixed bottom offshore wind farm, Seagreen, celebrates a jacket installation milestone with positioning over 50 substructures.

The three-legged jacket foundations each weigh approx. 2,000 tonnes and will play a critical role in safely supporting the wind turbines during Seagreen’s 25 year operational lifespan, developer SSE Renewables said.

When complete, Seagreen which is located around 27km off the Angus coast, will consist of 114 Vestas V164-10.0 MW turbines. The wind farm will be capable of generating around 5,000 GWh of renewable energy annually which is enough electricity to power more than 1.6m UK homes.

John Hill, Seagreen’s Project Director, said: “Seeing the jacket installation process reach the halfway point demonstrates successful innovation with the largest ever deployment of foundations using suction caissons in offshore wind. Reaching this milestone is a testament to the hard work and determination of everyone involved in the construction of Scotland’s largest and the world’s deepest fixed bottom offshore wind farm. This achievement follows the significant announcement last week where first power was generated from the first turning turbines. Once operational in the first half of 2023, Seagreen will make a significant contribution to Scotland’s and the UK’s net zero targets.”
