The jackets will be offloaded at Nigg, where they will undergo the final preparations before they are loaded onto the jack-up vessel “Seajacks Scylla” which will undertake their installation at sea, more than 25km from shore in the Moray Firth.
We have welcomed the safe arrival of the heavy lift vessel OHT Osprey with the first 8 of what will be 103 Jacket structures for the Moray East Offshore Windfarm project for DEME Offshore. The Port of Nigg was chosen as the foundations staging port for the construction of the 950MW offshore windfarm which will see 100 turbines and 3 offshore substation platforms being installed.
Under the agreed deal, the jetty will be operated as an extension to the Port of Nigg which has already established itself as a leading deep-water port, servicing oil and gas, offshore renewables and the wider energy markets.
Sue Jane Taylor has arrived on site at our Port of Nigg facility, where she will spend the next 12 months sketching and painting, people’s activities, the facilities and day to day operations taking place.
