All turbines have been installed at the 1.1-GW Seagreen offshore wind project, a joint venture between SSE Renewables and TotalEnergies (EPA:TTE), which will be Scotland’s largest offshore wind farm when fully operational.
The final of the project’s 114 Vestas V164-10.0 MW turbines was installed on Thursday, SSE Renewables said. Seventy six of them have now been energised and are delivering power to the grid.
Located 27 kilometres (about 17 miles) from the Angus coast, the wind farm will be fully onstream in the summer. It will be able to generate around 5,000 GWh of power a year, enough to meet the needs of more than 1.6 million UK homes.
Turbines were installed by Cadeler’s vessel Orca, from the Port of Nigg.
SSE Renewables leads the project’s development and construction and will operate the wind farm over its expected 25-year lifetime.
