Ecosse Bags Seabed Clearance Gig on Beatrice OWF

Ecosse Subsea Systems (ESS) has been awarded a seabed clearance project on the £2.6 billion Beatrice offshore wind farm (BOWL) in the Outer Moray Firth.

The company will conduct boulder clearing operations in 50 meter water depth, deploying its Scar2 seabed system from the Siem Ruby vessel on behalf of client Siem Offshore Contractors.

BOWL is located approximately 13 km off the Caithness coast and on completion in 2019 will consist of 84 turbines which are expected to power roughly 450,000 homes.

ESS commercial director, Keith McDermott, said: “With experience of similar clearance and trenching work scopes on Race Bank and Westermost Rough wind farms offshore the east coast of England, and a number of projects in the Baltic Sea, our track record in renewables is well-established.

“We have a strong relationship with Siem Offshore Contractors, dating back to a boulder clearing and trenching work scope on the EnBW Baltic 2 offshore wind farm, and we are delighted to be working with them again.”
