Operated by Statoil in partnership with Masdar, the 30 MW wind farm consists of five 6 MW turbines and is located 25 kilometers offshore Peterhead in Aberdeenshire, Scotland and will power approximately 20,000 households.
International engineering and operations support services contractor ODE, an integral part of the DORIS Group, has been awarded two Framework Agreements for Electrical Project Management, and for Wind Turbine Generator (WTG) Project Engineering and associated Project and Interface Management.
The framework agreements will run until 2021 and apply to Vattenfall WindKraft, its subsidiaries and affiliated companies across Europe, including the United Kingdom, Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden.

The latest addition to Vroon Offshore’s fleet combines a stable, highly manoeuvrable platform with high-quality accommodation, onboard equipment storage and ease of access to offshore platforms
July saw Vroon Offshore in the Netherlands hold a naming ceremony for VOS Start, the first of a new class of subsea/walk-to-work vessels that was purpose-designed and built to support offshore operations in the renewable energy industry and walk-to-work projects in the offshore oil and gas industry.
Geotechnical engineering consultants, Cathie Associates, have announced the opening of U.S. operations with the appointment of a new Vice President. The move is part of Cathie Associates’ drive for international expansion and to enable improved support of the U.S. offshore energy industry.
Sean McDonald will be responsible for leading Cathie Associates’ expansion in the U.S. offshore wind sector. He has a wealth of offshore experience, and a strong background in geology, geophysics, and geotechnical engineering.
The world’s first full scale floating wind turbine is being installed off the coast of north-east Scotland. The floating foundations will enable turbines to operate in deeper waters and will dramatically reduce the cost of installation.
In total five Siemens Gamesa 6MW turbines are being installed at the Peterhead wind farm, known broadly as Hywind, which will provide power to 20,000 homes.
Norwegian oil and gas giant Statoil has produced the turbines and hope that the floating foundations will enable turbines to be installed in many viable sites that are currently too deep for monopiles.
Marine engineering consultancy firm LOC Group has launched LOC Renewables, a new service team focus specifically on supporting offshore renewable wind projects. The new team is headed by RV Ahilan, Group Director of Renewables Advisory & Energy Technology, and focuses on design, engineering, and marine warranty survey consultancy.
The winds of change are blowing through the global energy ecosystem as renewable technologies become increasingly competitive and an growing sense of reality regarding the need for long-term sustainability come to bear. One development that is becoming increasingly cost effective is wind energy, with recent studies finding costs of the technology to be falling fast.
The technology group Wärtsilä signed in January a contract with Babcock International Group plc to design and build a number of switchboards and distribution boards for the world's first offshore reactive compensation station, a vital part of transmitting to shore the electricity produced sustainably by the offshore wind farm.
The Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm is currently under construction at Babcock Rosyth in Scotland. Upon completion, the wind farm, operated by DONG Energy, will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world. Wärtsilä will supply the Wärtsilä Low voltage switchboards for the world's first offshore reactive compensation station.
HOUSTON, TX (June 28, 2017) – Zentech Inc. and Renewables Resources International (RRI)are pleased to announce to the United States Offshore Wind Industry the build of the firstJones Act compliant, four legged, self-propelled Dynamically-Positioned Level 2 (DP2) Jack-upVessel based on a US-built barge. Zentech plans to install four truss legs with spud cans, aproven oil & gas design, integrated in a newly built hull.
This vessel will provide the now evolving US Offshore Wind Industry with a much needed andcost competitive marine logistic solution, converting a Jones Act compliant asset aligned with the conclusions from the European offshore wind learning curve. The vessel will also act as an Oil & Gas Crane Jack-Up for Decommissioning in 300-ft water depths when not in service for installing and/or maintaining wind turbines.
