North Sea, Scotland
Smulders, in a joint venture with DEME Offshore, is constructing 55 jackets for the Moray East Offshore Wind Farm.
35 of the 55 top parts are being built at our Hoboken facility with parts coming from Smulders and Eiffage Métal plants in Belgium, Poland and France. The remaining 20 are fabricated by our Spanish subcontractor, who also completed and shipped the first 2 top parts. The lower parts are built at our yard in Newcastle upon Tyne.
The first top parts left our yard in Hoboken in March for final assembly at our yard in Newcastle upon Tyne. The jackets, with a length of 85 metres and each weighing 1,000 tons, will be transported and installed offshore by DEME Offshore’s next generation installation vessel Orion in 2020.
The 950 MW capacity wind farm project will cover 295 sq. kilometres and is expected to supply 950,000 households with electricity. The wind farm will be built off the north-eastern coast of Scotland.
