    Wind farm deal 'boosts confidence in Nigg yard’

    September 30, 2022 - Ross-shire Journal


      A MAJOR Ross-shire employer has agreed a multimillion-pound deal it says will support 50 jobs amid progress on a major wind farm project.

      Moray West Offshore Wind Farm has signed a contract for complex elements of foundation structure with Global Energy Group (GEG).

      The multi million pound contract is for the supply of the two J-tube frames that will be attached to the two foundations holding the offshore substation platforms (OSPs).

      The frames are approximately 37 metres in length and 11 metres in diameter and support the steel tubes that will protect the cables coming into the OSPs from the wind turbines as well as the cable exporting the power to shore.

      The cables are buried in the seabed around the OSPs.

      GEG will fabricate the J-tubes at the quayside fabrication facilities at the Port of Nigg in the Cromarty Firth supporting 50 local jobs at GEG. Loadout will benefit from the high quality deep water port facilities.

      Moray West has previously announced that the Port of Nigg will be used by Siemens Gamesa for marshalling and pre-assembly of the wind turbines in 2024. The J-tube contract boosts fabrication capability to supply the growing sector.

      Ocean Winds UK country manager, Adam Morrison said: "We look forward to working with GEG on the delivery and their continuing work around the regional skills transition, enabled by projects such as Moray West."

      Iain Sinclair, executive director for Global Energy Group said: "As we develop and grow our offshore wind supply chain value proposition, GEG can leverage existing core competencies such as the fabrication of critical components to accelerate the transition of knowledge and skills.

      "We are delighted to be working with OW and the Moray West team and this project award gives confidence to invest for future growth at the Port of Nigg."
