Wind energy – cables
A 100 ton spare export cable for the Neart na Gaoithe (NnG) Offshore Wind Farm has arrived at the Port of Rosyth.
Here it will be stored for a minimum five years on a purpose-built cable carousel.
The spare cable was delivered to Rosyth, where it was spooled from the vessel, along a cable highway and onto the carousel.
The Port of Rosyth, owned by Forth Ports, will provide secure quayside storage and warehousing for all the spare onshore and offshore export cables and cable accessories required for the operational phase of the NnG Windfarm.
The port will facilitate the storage of this equipment initially during the construction period and potentially for the 25 year operation life of the Windfarm.
The partnership with Forth Ports further underlines NnG’s commitment to the Scottish supply chain. NnG is now using three of the Scottish port operator’s facilities for construction of the project with its marine hub based at the Port of Dundee and the Port of Leith operating as the project’s marine logistics base for pile casings.
