July 25 - A Tecade-manufactured offshore structure weighing 325 tonnes is being shipped from the port of Seville to Invergordon, Scotland for use in the Inch Cape offshore wind farm in the North Sea.

The 50 m long offshore structure consists of a monopile support and access platform, and is going to be used to support a meteorological mast for the Inch Cape project.

This operation, according to the Port Authority of Seville, "shows again the suitability and special aptitude of the inland port in Seville to host activities related to the construction of large structures for international projects offshore".

The Inch Cape farm will consist of 213 turbines that will be fixed to the seabed in an area of about 150 sq km. Once fully operational the marine wind farm will have a power generation capacity of around 1,000 MW.
