The 950 MW wind farm, located 22 km off the north-east coast of Scotland, was developed by MOWEL, Moray Offshore Windfarm East. As one of Scotland’s few large-scale offshore wind farms, it plays a key role in supplying electricity from renewable sources. It helps reducing the energy cost as well as the need for importing and using fossil fuels such as coal or gas. It will be capable of meeting the average electricity needs of 40% of the households in Scotland, that is equal to 950,000 households, and prevent 1.7 million tonnes of CO2 emissions a year from entering the atmosphere when compared to gas-fired power plants. MOWEL selected NKT as turnkey supplier of three cable systems including installation. Contributing factors were our state-of-the-art cable-laying vessel NKT Victoria and provision of preferred trenching solution. Having extensive experience from offshore wind farm projects NKT are proud taking responsibility for both cable system manufacturing and offshore installation enabling increased efficiency and minimizing of risks. There were, however, suddenly more than technical and weather challenges to overcome to finalize what was at the time Scotland’s largest ongoing infrastructure project. The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic had to be considered and handled throughout the installation.
