Seaway 7, the main Seagreen contractor, has hired Dutch offshore marine services group Van Oord to install scour protection around the 114 wind turbine foundations at the Seagreen offshore wind farm, located 27 km off the coast of Angus in Scotland.
Van Oord is deploying its flexible fallpipe vessel Bravenes for rock installation close to the jacket foundations as well as Nordnes to install scour protection on several cable crossings. All subsea activities will take place in water depths of up to 50 m.
When commissioned in 2022/23, the 1.1 GW Seagreen offshore wind farm will be Scotland’s largest and the world’s deepest fixed-bottom offshore wind farm. The project is owned by SSE Renewables 49% and TotalEnergies 51%.
