North Sea wind farm to feature 45 turbines
French firm EDF Renewables has awarded a contract to Saipem for the construction of the $1.5 billion Neart na Gaoithe (NnG) wind farm off the coast of Scotland.
The 450MW NnG wind farm will feature 54 turbines, each with 8MW capacity.
It is planned to be built in the North Sea, approximately 15km off the coast of Fife in southeast Scotland.
Under the contract, Saipem will be responsible for the EPCI of 54 steel foundation jackets for an equivalent number of wind turbines, and two foundation jackets for the offshore electrical substations. The firm will also undertake the transportation and installation of the relevant topsides for the project.
