WCN Editorial Team 5 Jun 2020 EUROPE ENERGY & UTILITIES

Scottish firm SSE Renewables has awarded a major contract to Subsea 7 to deliver foundations and inter-array cables for the Seagreen offshore wind farm project, located 27km offshore Scotland, UK.

Located in the Firth of Forth Development Zone of North Sea, the Seagreen offshore wind farm project is being developed in two phases.

The first phase of the project involves the construction of Seagreen Alpha and Seagreen Bravo wind farms with a combined installed capacity of 1.075GW.

The Seagreen offshore wind farm phase one zone will comprise 114 wind turbine generators, which will be supplied by MHI Vestas.

Under the contract, Subsea 7’s renewables business unit Seaway 7 will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of 114 wind turbine generator foundations.

The firm will also supply and install approximately 300km of associated inter-array cables for the Seagreen phase one project.

Seaway 7 Renewables executive vice-president Steph McNeill said: “We are looking forward to continuing our successful collaborative relationship with SSE Renewables as we help construct Seagreen.

“We have been active in the UK Renewables sector for over a decade and are very pleased to continue to support the ongoing energy transition in the UK.  

“The Seagreen project will be managed from our Seaway 7 office in Aberdeen, bringing our offshore wind expertise to the largest offshore wind project in Scotland.”

The contract work is expected to create a maximum of 50 jobs within Seaway 7’s Aberdeen office where the EPCI contract will be managed.

According to Subsea 7, a major contract is defined as being more than $750m.
