DEME to install foundations for Moray West offshore wind project in Scotland

Belgian marine contractor DEME on Monday said it will install the foundations for the Moray West offshore wind project in the Moray Firth in Scotland.

The 882-MW Moray West offshore wind farm is being developed by Ocean Winds, a joint venture between EDP Renovaveis SA (ELI:EDPR) and Engie SA (EPA:ENGI), with Lithuania’s Ignitis Group holding a small stake.

The new contract comes after DEME completed the Moray East project for Ocean Winds in 2020. For Moray West, it will carry out installation campaigns in 2023-2024, using its floating offshore installation vessel Orion to install the monopile foundations and its jack-up Apollo to install the project’s transition pieces.

DEME said this will be the first instance of installing XXL monopiles in the winter period and the first use of a vibro-hammer for XXL monopiles to overcome weaker soil layers.

The assignment is a “sizeable” contract for the company, meaning it is in the range of EUR 50 million (USD 53m) to EUR 150 million.(EUR 1 = USD 1.054)
