Oslo-based Offshore Heavy Transport (OHT) has been awarded a contract for the transportation of jacket foundations for the Moray East offshore wind project in Scotland, UK.
The contract, awarded by DEME Offshore, includes transportation of 48 jackets from Lamprell fabrication yard, UAE to the Port of Nigg in the Scottish Highlands.
OHT will dedicate three of their largest open deck semi-submersible heavy transportation vessels to the project.
The three-legged jackets, averaging more than 1,000 tonnes each, will reach up to 80 metres in height and OHT’s impressive fleet will carry on average eight foundations per voyage.
Transportation of all jackets is expected to be completed by September 2020.
