Wind energy – Neart na Gaoithe
Load-out of the OSS 1 topside (225 MW) Neart na Gaoithe at HSM Offshore completed.
This is the first of two offshore substation topsides to be installed on the 450 MW Neart na Gaoithe (NnG) offshore wind farm off the Fife coast in Scotland.
The offshore substations are a key element for exporting energy production from the wind farm. The topsides will include the main electrical equipment for connecting the wind farm to the onshore grid.
OSS1 weighs 1200 tonnes.
