Boston Energy supporting MHI Vestas turbine pre-assembly

In: Windfarms
Boston Energy has announced has secured a contract to support MHI Vestas Offshore Wind (MHI Vestas) with the pre-assembly of offshore wind turbine for multiple projects in the United Kingdom.

It includes supporting MHI Vestas with the pre-assembly of its
V164-9.5 MW turbines to be installed at the Triton Knoll and Moray East offshore wind farms. These are due to commence later this year in Invergordon and Able Seaton.

Rob Wilhoite, Boston Energy Account Manager & Project Lead said: “This is fantastic news for Boston Energy; this contract award solidifies our close relationship with MHI Vestas which has been built since 2017 in supporting their last 5 major pre assembly projects for Burbo Bank, Walney Extension, Northwester, Northwester 2 and Borssele. We thank MVOW for their continued confidence in our capabilities by awarding us such a prestigious contract. I would also like to thank our brilliant technicians, who through their commitment, professionalism and hard work have made this possible. We now look forward to developing our partnership further and collaborating during these UK based projects."

Located 32 km off the coast of Lincolnshire in the east of England,
Triton Knoll is owned by innogy (59%), J-Power (25%), and Kansai Electric Power (16%) with innogy managing the construction as well as long-term operation and maintenance works, on behalf of its project partners. It is expected to produce first power in 2021. Once fully operational, it will be capable of generating enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of over 800,000 typical UK households.

The 950 MW
Moray East project is being developed by Moray Offshore Windfarm East Ltd (MOWEL), a joint venture company owned by Diamond Green Limited (33.4%), EDPR (33.3 %), ENGIE (23.3%) and CTG (10%). It will feature 100 MHI Vestas V164-9.5 MW turbines and three offshore substations which are to be installed around 22km from the coast in the Moray Firth, Scotland.
