Beatrice – the final wind turbine tower has pre-assembled at Nigg Energy Park in Scotland, UK

In May 2018 Windhoist – World Leaders in Wind Turbine Erection had awarded by Siemens Gamesa with a contract to carry out wind turbine pre-assembly work for the Wind Turbine Tower588MW Beatrice. The key features of the project are:

  • 84 Siemens Games turbines
  • 588MW installed capacity
  • 450,000 homes powered

This project has opened doors for our company into offshore wind.

Beatrice will create about 90 full-time operational roles for the duration of its 25 year lifespan.

Swire Blue Ocean’s jack-up is loading the turbines in sets of five at the Nigg port, Siemens Gamesa’s pre-assembly base, and installing them approximately 13km form the Caithness coast. The wind turbines are being commissioned shortly after the installation.

Beatrice wind farm is owned and developed by Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Limited (BOWL), a joint venture partnership between SSE (40%), Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (35%) and Red Rock Power Limited (25%).
