Harland and Wolff’s Methil yard has taken delivery of a “first sea cargo shipment” of parts for wind turbine jackets.
The materials will be used to fabricate eight structures that will fix some of the turbines for the Neart na Gaoithe (NnG) offshore wind farm to the sea floor.
The company said the sea shipment “follows several deliveries by road”.
It was announced in April that InfraStrata had landed a £26 million contract to supply turbine jacket for NnG, just a few months after acquiring Methil following the collapse of previous owner Burntisland Fabrications (BiFab).
At the time, the company said the win would create about 290 direct and indirect jobs in Scotland.
NnG – which is jointly owned by France’s EDF Renewables and Irelands’s ESB – is being built about nine miles of the coast of Fife.
The 54-turbine development will have the capacity to supply green energy to almost 400,000 homes.
Developers previously said they are hopeful the wind farm, which is due to come online in 2023, will run to time despite delays to “certain areas”.
