Moray West substations arrive at the Port of Nigg
A UK-based specialist heavy transportation company, Harlyn Solutions, has been entrusted with the first phase of the offshore substation transport for the Moray West wind farm, in the outer Moray Firth, off the coast of Scotland. The two substations have arrived in the Cromarty Firth and are awaiting their installation at the wind farm.
Harlyn Solutions provided the necessary engineering, vessels, and marine support for turnkey operations, including offshore seafastening release before transferring to the installation vessel and installation on monopiles.
“Harlyn are thrilled to have secured this extensive scope in an exciting project and completed the primary phase. As a UK firm delivering to support the build of this UK offshore wind farm, we are proud to work alongside other high-quality companies in this delivery. The scope fits into our core goals as a company to offer turn-key solutions to support the project,” said Hamish Adamson Managing Director, Harlyn Solutions.
Pete Geddes, Moray West project director commented, “As the Moray West project progresses through installation, we are delighted that Harlyn Solutions have safely delivered the two topsides to the Port of Nigg, ready for the final journey to the wind farm site. The project has progressed a multi-contracting approach across the foundations’ scopes. This has meant that we have developed our understanding of the marine transport sector, including finding and selecting Harlyn as a thoroughly competent UK supplier.”
The substations will shortly be loaded out to the installation vessel prior to the offshore installation and hook-up.
