Spanish energy firm Siemens Gamesa has secured a contract to supply 60 wind turbine units for the 882MW Moray West offshore wind power project in Scotland.

Under the contract, the company will deliver its SG 14-222 DD offshore wind turbines, each with 14.7MW of capacity.

Each SG 14-222 DD turbine will feature a rotor diameter of 222m and use Siemens Gamesa ’s 108m-long IntegralBlades.

Siemens Gamesa offshore business unit CEO Marc Becker said: “Successfully signing the firm order for Moray West serves to further cement Siemens Gamesa as the leader of the offshore revolution.

“We were heartened to be named preferred bidder by Moray West in October 2021 and are now even happier to see their confidence in us become reality today.

“We’re able to contribute to both combatting the climate emergency and develop the world’s largest offshore wind market simultaneously.”

Located in Scotland’s Moray Firth inlet, the Moray West project is expected to generate its first power in 2024.

Siemens Gamesa said that order also includes a service agreement.

Moray West project director Adam Morrison said: “Following the earlier announcement that Siemens Gamesa were the preferred bidder, we are delighted to have finalised agreements for supply and installation of the SG 14-222 DD turbines and their servicing.

“We look forward to working with Siemens Gamesa to ensure a smooth and safe installation programme from the Nigg pre-assembly port as we move towards generation from this major renewables project – stepping towards Net Zero, increasing energy security and lowering the cost of energy.”

Earlier this month, Siemens Gamesa received an order from Vena Energy to supply wind turbines for a wind project in India.

Installation works for the 133MW project are expected to start next year, with the turbines to be manufactured at Siemens Gamesa’s facilities in India.
