Fred. Olsen Windcarrier will install the hitherto largest offshore wind farm featuring MHI Vestas turbines. The company, based in the western Danish town of Fredericia and a subsidiary of Norwegian shipping group Fred. Olsen, has received an installation contract for the 950 MW offshore wind farm Moray East, says Fred Olsen Windcarrier in a statement.
The service operator will begin installing the 100 9.5 MW machines from early 2021 and will use one of its largest jack-up rigs – probably either Brave Tern, Bold Tern, or the most recent addition to the fleet, Blue Tern – for the job, based out of Scottish port town Invergordon, the facility's assembly port.
