Port of Blyth wins Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm cable contract
The Port of Blyth has been selected for the storage and mobilisation of inter-array cable for the Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm.
It was selected by Seaway 7, a company focused in delivering fixed and floating offshore wind farm projects and heavy lifting cables.
The 1,075 megawatt Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm project is located 27km off the coast of Angus in the North Sea firth.
A £3bn joint venture between TotalEnergies (51 per cent) and SSE Renewables (49 per cent), Seagreen will be Scotland’s largest and deepest offshore wind farm when complete.
The Northumberland based port has already started to receive cable into quayside storage tanks, designed and built by their in-house technical team.
In total, approximately 12,000 tonnes of inter-array cable will pass through the Port’s Battleship Wharf Terminal, prior to installation offshore across 2022.
Martin Lawlor, chief executive of Port of Blyth, said: “Clearly, we are delighted to have been selected by Seaway 7 and look forward to working with them over the course of the project which will only enhance our reputation as one of the UK’s leading offshore energy hubs.
“We are confident that the award will help to attract further contracts to support the sector.”
