450 MW Neart
(NnG), which will be built offshore Scotland, has appointed two Scottish
companies to construct its operations and maintenance (O&M) base
at Eyemouth Harbour.
Fife-based Muir Construction will design and build NnG’s three storey,
1,040 square metre main O&M building and its two storey, 538 square
metre storage warehouse, while Moray-based Inland and Coastal is set to
design, manufacture, and install the harbour’s new pontoon, making the
basin accessible to Crew Transfer Vessels and technicians.
The 450 MW Neart
wind farm is owned by EDF Renewables and ESB. Once fully operational, it
is expected to generate electricity for around 375,000 homes, or all domestic
properties in a city the size of Edinburgh, and to displace 400,000 tons
of CO2 annually. Earlier this year, EDF and ESB signed a lease with Eyemouth
Harbour Trust, which establisehd Eyemouth Harbour as the O&M base.
It will serve as such across the project's lifespan, 25 years.
has commenced enabling works. Construction of the main O&M building
is expected this month. For the pontoon, Inland and Coastal has completed
design and fabrication is expected to start this month (June 2021), with
installation later in the year.
really pleased to welcome Muir Construction and Inland and Coastal to the
NnG project", said NnG's Project Director, Matthias Haag. “We
are fully committed to using the Scottish supply chain wherever possible
and these two fantastic companies join a long list of Scottish business
who are supporting delivery of this hugely important infrastructure project
