Seaway 7 has been chosen as a preferred supplier for the Seagreen 1A offshore wind project off the coast of Scotland by Seagreen 1A Limited. Seagreen 1A is located next to the existing Seagreen project, which is now under construction by Seaway 7, and adds roughly 500MW of renewable energy producing capacity.
Seaway 7’s scope of work is under final negotiation and may include the full engineering, fabrication, transport and installation of 36 foundations, transportation and installation of the offshore substation and the procurement and installation of inner-array cables. Execution of the scope will be led from Seaway 7’s Aberdeen office.
The project is expected to commence in 2023 with offshore work commencing in late 2024 and could be operational by 2025/26.
The timeframe and Seaway 7’s selection are subject to the Seagreen 1A project reaching FID. The value related to this very large (1) agreement will not be recognised in Seaway 7’s backlog until final contractual terms have been agreed.
Stuart Fitzgerald, CEO Seaway 7, said: “We are delighted to be continuing our successful relationship with SSE Renewables and TotalEnergies to progress the Seagreen 1A project. The project will continue to be managed from our office in Aberdeen where we are bringing over a decade of UK offshore wind expertise to Scotland’s largest offshore wind project.”
(1) “Very large” agreements are between $500m and $750m.
