TECADE loads out Moray East transition pieces


The first transition pieces manufactured by TECADE for the Moray East offshore wind project in Scotland have departed from the Port of Seville. The transition pieces are being shipped to Navantia in Puerto Real, where the assembly with the upper part of the jacket will take place.

In total, TECADE is to manufacture 20 transition pieces that once assembled, will finally be destined to Newcastle (UK) for the complete assembly of the structure. TECADE secured the contract last year, through the NAVANTIA company and Nervión Industrias. Manufacturing work on the remaining units continues in the Port of Seville. Once complete the project will have consisted of a total 350,000 hours of work and the direct employment of up to 350 people.

The 950 MW
Moray East project is being developed by Moray Offshore Windfarm East Ltd (MOWEL), which is 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. 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.
