Inverlussa's Margaret Sinclair Deploys ADCP Tidal Meters (UK)

Inverlussa Marine Services was awarded the contract to deploy ADCP tidal meters up to 12 miles west of Islay for SSE Renewables. M.v. Margaret Sinclair executed the job with huge success considering the exposed location and tidal current which the area is renowned for.

Launched in 2006 Margaret Sinclair is a 21m coastal landing craft, purpose built for Inverlussa Marine Services by Alexander Noble and Sons Ltd, of Girvan. The vessel was built to the company’s exact specifications, to provide an all-round work boat fit for the varied and challenging terrain of the West Coast of Scotland.

With a cargo-carrying capacity of 68 tonnes, this highly flexible vessel, with its bow thruster and high lift rudders, offers great maneuverability and the ability to hold a stationary position when required. The spacious, clear working area on deck makes the boat suitable for everything from ferry contracts, to cargo carrying, to survey work.

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
