Lamprell announced that it has received a Letter of Award (LOA) from Seaway 7, the Renewables business unit of Subsea 7, the lead engineering, procurement, construction and installation contractor on the Seagreen offshore wind farm, for the provision of Wind Turbine Generator (WTG) Substructures for the project.

To be executed on a lump-sum basis, the scope of work includes the procurement, fabrication and delivery of 30 WTGs Substructures, including the jackets, transition pieces and suction caissons.

This large project award is subject to finalising the contract, which is expected to be completed shortly. Fabrication work is expected to complete in H2 2021. Lamprell will deliver the jackets to Seaway 7 at the Group’s deep water quayside in Hamriyah port whereupon Seaway 7 will transport the jackets to the offshore windfarm in the North Sea.

The Seagreen offshore windfarm project is a 1,075MW project which is located 27km off the Angus Coast in the Firth of Forth, off the coast of Scotland and will be developed and operated by Seagreen Wind Energy Limited. Once constructed, the windfarm will be the largest in Scotland and Phase One is forecast to provide low carbon energy for around one million homes.

Christopher McDonald, CEO, Lamprell, said: “We are delighted to have been selected to be part of the major Seagreen offshore windfarm project. Having worked on similar projects in the renewables segment, our workforce is skilled and experienced to execute the project with a focus on the key drivers of safety, high quality and profitability. We see substantial growth opportunities in the renewables sector, which is a core strategic focus for Lamprell, and we are excited to work with Seaway 7 on this project in the months to come.”
