Suppliers urged to seek work for Scotland’s biggest wind farm
SSE Renewables has announced three local Seagreen Meet the Buyer events on 5, 6 and 7 November in Inverness, Aberdeen and Dundee respectively. These events aim to enable local companies to learn more about the opportunities on offer, and meet the Seagreen team and its principal contractors.
SSE Renewables is offering a range of contracts for the building of Seagreen off the coast of Fife. It will be one of the most significant construction projects undertaken in Scotland. A contract for MHI Vestas Offshore Wind, which will lead on turbine supply and operational servicing, has already been announced and publicised.
Once completed, the project will inherit the crown of SSE Renewables’ other Scottish wind farm, Beatrice, and become Scotland’s largest offshore wind farm. Seagreen is situated more than 27km off the Angus coastline and is expected to contribute over £2 billion to the UK economy, of which £1bn could be in Scotland alone.
Up to 114 MHI Vestas wind turbines will make up the site, providing around 5,000GWh annually of clean, low carbon renewable energy for around one million homes and saving around two million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually.
Places for each of the local Seagreen Meet the Buyer events can be booked on Eventbrite.
