Wind Energy – Transformer Modules
The load out of the two Offshore Transformer Modules on November 1 marks the completion of the latest Ocean Winds contract for the Smulders yard on the Tyne at Wallsend.
The OTMs have been delivered under a consortium of Siemens Energy and Iemants.
Iemants is a subsidiary of Smulders, alongside Smulders Projects UK.
Both OTMs have been fabricated at the yard with Siemens Energy managing the fit out of their equipment onto the OTMs from their Manchester base.
The load out onto transport barges has been safely completed and one barge has departed for Scotland and the installation site at the Moray West offshore wind farm. The second OTM is alongside the quay ready to be transported north.
The successful delivery of the Moray West OTMs marks the second major offshore wind farm where Ocean Winds has successfully worked with Siemens Energy and Smulders to support UK content, following earlier contracts for the 950MW Moray East project.
