Global Energy Group’s Port of Nigg has been selected by DEME Offshore as a staging port for the Moray East offshore windfarm development and is set to receive a £10-£12M (US$13-$15M) contract. Port of Nigg has been earmarked to receive completed jacket structures that will be installed in the Moray Firth as foundations for the wind turbines. Moray East project director Marcel Sunier said, “Selection of Nigg as the staging port for the jackets comes after extensive engagement with the local supply chain and capitalises on the strengths of a history of offshore engineering. “Using Nigg for jackets complements our previous announcement of the Port of Cromarty Firth as an intermediate port for turbines. The installation of subsea substructures from Nigg combined with the installation of turbines from Invergordon has enabled us to establish an onshore cluster to deliver the offshore works.”

Global Energy has won an offshore wind contract worth up to £12 million. The company said that its Port of Nigg facility, on the Cromarty Firth in the Highlands, will handle the jacket foundation structures for the Moray East offshore wind farm. Global Energy Group was founded in 2005 by Roy MacGregor, who is also the chairman of Ross County FC, and it provides support services for the energy industry. The company employs more than 3,000 people and generated revenue of about £289 million in the 12 months to the end of March 2018. Deme Offshore, a Belgian marine services group, is the contractor installing the large jacket foundations for the wind farm and it will use Nigg as a base for its operations.
