Beatrice Growing Wind Turbine Legs, 24 Jackets Installed

Seaway Heavy Lifting’s vessels Stanislav Yudin and Oleg Strashnov are working full-steam at the Beatrice offshore wind farm site and have installed 78 pile sets and 24 jacket foundations so far, according to the project’s latest Notice to Mariners.

The 588MW offshore wind farm will consist of 84 wind turbines and two Siemens Offshore Transformer Modules (OTMs), all placed on top of jacket foundations.

The piling works, carried out by Stanislav Yudin, are expected to be completed by the end of October. Oleg Strashnov is scheduled to be working on jacket installation until December 2017 and then resume in May 2018, weather permitting.

The first Siemens 7MW turbines will be installed in summer 2018, with the wind farm anticipated to be commissioned by the end of 2019.

Beatrice is located in the Outer Moray Firth off Scotland, approximately 13km off the Caithness coastline.
