Wind Energy – Moray West
Sarens PSG welcomes DEME’s floating DP3 offshore installation vessel Orion to Port of Cromarty Firth.
Here the vessel will be prepared to soon commence installation of Moray West XXL Monopiles
DEME Offshore’s scope includes the installation of monopile foundations and transition pieces. The revolutionary floating DP3 offshore installation vessel Orion will install the monopiles and jack-up Apollo will be deployed for the installation of transition pieces.
Moray West is the second major project undertaken for Ocean Winds.
DEME will deploy its double-staged, motion compensated pile gripper and it will also be the first time a vibro-hammer is being utilised for the XXL monopiles to overcome weaker soil layers.
As well as the XXL monopiles and transition pieces, DEME will perform the bolting and grouting works for the monopile/transition piece connections.
