Prior to heading to Nigg, Bold Tern completed the mobilisation for the project at the Port of Esbjerg in Denmark.

Bold Tern will transport 100 MHI Vestas 9.5 MW units from Port of Nigg and install them at the site some 22 kilometres off the Aberdeenshire coast.

The turbine commissioning work will be carried out from Acta Centaurus and supported by two crew transfer vessels, HST Harri and Windcat 40.

Moray East is slated for full commissioning in 2022.

The project is being developed by Moray Offshore Windfarm East Ltd (MOWEL), a joint venture company owned by Ocean Winds (56.6%) Diamond Green Limited (33.4%), and CTG (10%).
