Moray West is the “little” brother of Moray East, ENGIE’s first offshore wind farm (commissioned in 2022). Both have been built by Ocean Winds, ENGIE’s 50/50 joint venture with EDPR.

April 22 is a milestone in parc construction timeline: the achievement of the installation of the 60th wind turbine.

But before installing turbines, do you know what kind of long preparation work is necessary? If words such as monopiles and transition pieces are unknown to you, take a look at our report on the construction site of the Moray West offshore wind farm:

With a capacity of 882 MW, Moray West will be able to power 1.33 million homes – 50% of Scotland’s energy needs - and will create long-term jobs for its monitoring from the Operations & Maintenance center. It will also contribute to United Kingdom’s target of meeting one third of its electricity requirements from offshore wind by 2030.
