Seaway 7 has been selected by Seagreen 1A Limited as a preferred supplier for the
Seagreen 1A offshore wind project, offshore Scotland.  

The timeframe and Seaway 7’s selection are subject to SSE Renewables and TotalEnergies reaching Final Investment Decision. The value related to a "very large" agreement will not be recognised in Seaway 7’s backlog until final contractual terms have been agreed. The company values "very large" agreements between $500m and $750m.

Seaway 7’s scope of work is under final negotiation and may include the full engineering, fabrication, transport and installation of 36 foundations, transportation and installation of the offshore substation and the procurement and installation of inner-array cables. Execution of the scope will be led from Seaway 7’s Aberdeen office.

Stuart Fitzgerald, CEO Seaway 7, said: “We are delighted to be continuing our successful relationship with SSE Renewables and TotalEnergies to progress the Seagreen 1A project. The project will continue to be managed from our office in Aberdeen where we are bringing over a decade of UK offshore wind expertise to Scotland’s largest offshore wind project.”

Seagreen 1A is adjacent to the existing Seagreenproject that Seaway 7 is currently progressing and represents approximately 500MW of additional renewable energy generation capacity. The project is expected to commence in 2023 with offshore work commencing in late 2024 and could be operational by 2025/26.

Seagreen offshore wind farm is located 27 km off the Angus Coast in the Firth of Forth. It will be developed and operated by Seagreen Wind Energy Limited, owned by SSE Renewables and TotalEnergies. Once constructed, the wind farm will be the largest in Scotland. Phase One will feature 114 MHI Vestas V164-10 MW turbines and is expected to provide low carbon energy for more than one million homes. In September 2019, Seagreen secured a 15-year CfD contract awarded by the UK government. SSE Renewables is leading on the development and construction of the first 1,140 MW phase, supported by Total, and will operate the asset on completion, which is expected in 2022/23.
