Back in May 2019 Fred. Olsen Windcarrier was awarded a contract by MHI Vestas Offshore Wind for the transport and installation of 100 V164-9.5MW wind turbines for the Moray East project off the East coast of Scotland.

Located 22 km off the coast of Scotland, the 950 MW
Moray East project is the first of two wind farms to be developed in the Outer Moray Firth Zone. Development is being led by a joint venture between Diamond Green Limited (33.4%), EDPR (33.3 %), ENGIE (23.3%) and CTG (10%).

The project secured a Contract for Difference of £57.50/MWh from the UK Government in 2017, and is due to start generating power in 2021. Construction on the project started in Winter 2018, with commencement of the onshore works. The wind farm is expected to be fully operational in 2022.
