On 14 September 2021, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-up vessel Blue Tern successfully installed the final turbine, completing the installation of Vestas turbines at Moray East offshore wind farm. The 100 V164-9.5MW turbines will have a total output of 950MW and is to date the biggest offshore wind project in Scottish history
“Once again, it has been a pleasure to work with the crew from Fred. Olsen Windcarrier to install the Moray East project’s 100 V164-9.5MW turbines. The world-class vessels, Bold Tern and Blue Tern, as well as the experienced crew and installation teams have enabled the project to be installed swiftly throughout the project. The delivery of the final turbine at Moray East project is a key milestone for the whole team, particularly amidst the challenges of the past year,” said Allan Birk Wisby, Project Director, Vestas
Enrique Alvarez, Project Director Moray East said: “In the face of unprecedented global conditions we have safely completed the installation of 100 turbines within the challenging timescale of a single season, and I would like to thank and congratulate all those involved in achieving this milestone safely. Offshore wind technology is developing rapidly, and a collaborative approach throughout the supply chain enabled us to work with vessels and crew at the leading edge of the sector, contributing to our early success."
