Geosea has been named as the supplier for the Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI) for the Moray East Wind Farm development.
The German company signed up for the supply of installation of substructures.
Moray East Wind Farm, the companion development to the Moray West development, is owned by EDP Renewables (76.7%) and ENGIE (23.3%). The project was recently awarded a £57.50/MWhr contract for Difference (CfD) by the UK Government.
Oscar Diaz, project director of Moray East said: “Our close work and co-operation with suppliers like Geosea has been vital to being able to develop a project which is capable of delivering power at less than half the price of projects under construction today. The extensive works within this package mean that the announcement of Geosea represents major progress to project delivery.
“This work package can bring significant opportunities to the economy, and our ongoing work with Geosea will enable those opportunities to be optimised.
Jan Klaassen, business unit manager Offshore Renewables of Geosea said : “GeoSea has been involved in the project since 2012, whereby GeoSea and Moray East have been working on in-depth understanding and rational distribution of risks, which clearly led to a reduced levelized cost of energy of the project. This close cooperation did lay a basis for the successful CfD award.
