Lamprell has been selected by GeoSea, the lead engineering, procurement, construction and installation contractor on the Moray East offshore wind farm, to fabricate jacket foundations for the project.
Lamprell will fabricate 45 out of approximately 100 jacket foundations required for the wind farm, plus three jackets for the offshore substations also being installed for use on the project.
Total project value is in excess of USD 200 million. All fabrication work will be performed in Lamprell’s Hamriyah and Sharjah yards in the UAE and is expected to begin in Q2 2019.
Lamprell will deliver the jackets to GeoSea from its deep water quayside in the Hamriyah port where GeoSea will transport the jackets to the offshore windfarm field in the North Sea.
The Moray East offshore wind farm project is a 295 km2, 950MW project which is located off the north eastern coast of Scotland and which will be developed and operated by Moray Offshore Windfarm (East) Ltd.
Christopher McDonald, CEO, Lamprell, said: “The contract award manifests our commitment to the fast growing renewables industry which, despite the recent challenges, remains a core strategic focus for Lamprell. Over the past 18 months we have upskilled our workforce and enhanced our systems and processes in order to enable us to deliver projects in the renewables segment safely, cost effectively and to a high standard. We look forward to working with GeoSea over the months to come.”
