Wind Energy – Moray West
Moray West Offshore Wind Farm has signed a contract for the supply and installation of the inter-array cables (IACs) with Seaway 7.
The contract includes the supply of IACs by JDR.
These IACs will connect the wind turbines back to the offshore substation platforms (OSP) before exporting the power back to the onshore connection point at Blackhillock near Keith. To ensure resilience in exporting the renewable energy, the contract also covers an interconnector cable that will be installed and buried in the seabed to connect the two OSPs.
A total of approximately 125km of 66kV subsea cables will be supplied by JDR and installed by Seaway7.
