Cadeler’s wind turbine installation vessel “Wind Orca” has installed 100 Vestas V164-10.0 MW offshore wind turbines at the Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm, Scotland’s largest and the world’s deepest piled offshore wind farm.
In early December 2021, Wind Osprey will complete its first turbine installation, and in April 2022, its sister vessel Wind Orca will take over the installation task and continue with the remaining 14 turbines.
According to Cadeler’s latest news, many of the turbines have been installed in water depths of more than 55 meters, with the deepest water depth for turbine installations to date being 59 meters.
The Seagreen 1 offshore wind farm is owned by SSE Renewables and TotalEnergies, with SSE responsible for the development, construction and operation of the project. The wind farm will be fully completed in 2023 with an installed capacity of 1,075 MW and will then be the largest fixed pile offshore wind farm in Scotland and the deepest in the world.
In October 2022, SSE Renewables and TotalEnergies received approval from Scottish Ministers to increase the total capacity of the remaining 36 turbines at Seagreen 1A, the Seagreen offshore wind farm, from 360 MW to 500 MW, which will bring the total installed capacity of the project to 1,575 MW.
Seagreen 1, currently under construction, will be connected to the Tealing grid in Angus, while Seagreen 1A’s 500 MW is connected to the Cockenzie grid in East Lothian.
