North Sea contractor Subsea 7 has contracted out the jackets and suction caissons to a fabrication yard in Zhuhai, China that is owned by COOEC-Fluor, a Sino-American joint venture.
Subsea 7 has the contract for engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of the foundations and inter array cables for the £3bn Seagreen offshore wind farm project.
The Seagreen development will be a 1,075MW offshore wind farm, comprising 114 wind turbines located off the east coast of Scotland.
It is being developed by SSE Renewables 27km off the coast of Angus. Once commissioned, it will be the largest in Scotland, providing around a million homes with energy.
