Global Energy Group (GEG) will extend its role in the Moray West offshore wind farm project to include pre-assembly services.

GEG to provide preassembly support services at Moray West

In September 2023, the project’s developer, Ocean Winds, chose the port of Nigg (owned by GEG) as the marshalling location for 62 transition pieces prior to their installation at the 950 MW Moray West offshore wind farmGEG will now also provide preassembly support services for the marshalling of the transition pieces, encompassing a broad range of critical onsite services including craneage, logistics, mounting ancillary equipment, and inspection/repair support. 

These contracts supplement the wind turbine marshalling and pre-assembly work that Siemens Gamesa has already confirmed will take place at Nigg.

The transition pieces will start to arrive at the port of Nigg later in 2023 with installation starting shortly afterwards and due for completion in 2024.

“We are delighted to be chosen by Moray West to execute these services for their exciting development, said Charlie Morrison, operations director at GEG and port of Nigg. “Having successfully supported three previous offshore wind projects from the Port of Nigg, including Moray East, our team is very much looking forward to welcoming Ocean Winds back to site. The knowledge and experience we have developed allows us to continually improve our service offerings as the UK’s offshore wind partner of choice.”
