Wind Energy – Moray West
Port of Nigg in the Cromarty Firth has been conditionally selected by Siemens Gamesa as the planned location for the pre-assembly of wind turbines for the Moray West offshore wind farm.
As the preferred bidder for the supply of the offshore wind turbines, the company has signed a conditional agreement with Global Energy Group to use Nigg as the base for installation works.
Subject to the award of a Contract for Difference (CfD) in 2022 and financial close, the wind turbine components will be marshalled at Nigg prior to installation and commissioning through 2024.
Moray West is expected to enter the next CfD auction that the UK Government has confirmed with be run in early 2022.
