The delivery of what will be Scotland’s largest offshore wind farm has taken a major step forward with the arrival of the first jacket superstructures at Nigg on the Cromarty Firth. The jacket components, which are to be installed as part of the foundations for the giant 1.1GW Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm, were welcomed to Global Energy Group’s Port of Nigg by representatives of project owners TotalEnergies and Scottish renewable energy developer SSE Renewables, along with main contractor Seaway 7. The delivery kickstarts the upcoming campaign to install all 114 wind turbine foundations at the offshore project site 27km off the Angus coast, beginning in October. After jacket foundations are installed, Vestas V164-10 MW turbines will be positioned on each of the turbine bases.
