Moray East establish 1st wind turbine in the Moray Firth

Moray East establish 1st wind turbine in Moray the Firth: Moray East has favourably set up its very first wind turbine in the Moray Firth.

The 1,116MW offshore wind programme was given permission by the Scottish Government in 2014, giving a power price of £57.50 per MWh.

Alltogether it aims to set 100 9.5MW turbines into position at the site, succeeding the conclusion of jacket installation in December.  These are 3-legged foundation framework that are situated on the seabed & brace the turbine tower.

Moray East’s Project Director, Marcel Sunier stated: “Moray East is the country’s largest infrastructure project and a massive amount of effort – represented by tonnes of steel and kilometres of cable – much of this below ground or sea – have been required to get us to this point.

“I am delighted to be able to announce one of the project’s most visible and distinctive milestones – the safe and successful installation of our first wind turbine. This is a truly amazing team effort considering the circumstances under which the teams had to work to achieve that important milestone.”
