Moray Offshore Renewables Ltd (MORL) has recently been granted consent to construct 1116MW offshore wind generation infrastructure in the outer Moray Firth.
A significant part of that project is the proposed Onshore Transmission Infrastructure which will comprises ca. 34km of underground cabling and significant new electricity substation infrastructure, which it is proposed to connect to the existing transmission grid, at a site south of New Deer, Aberdeenshire. Scottish Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and MORL are holding a supply chain workshop in Fraserburgh at the North East of Scotland College, Fraserburgh Campus on the 19th of August, specifically focussed on the Onshore Transmission Infrastructure.
This is an excellent opportunity to hear about the contracting strategy and to meet potential key suppliers for the MORL offshore wind project, and provides an opportunity for companies to supply this aspect of the project with the potential to meet directly with potential customers. The workshop will feature:
• A keynote address from local MP Eilidh Whiteford
• A comprehensive overview of the MORL offshore wind project in general
• Specific information about the Transmission Infrastructure aspects of the project, including contracting strategy
• Presentations from some of MORL’s potential T1 suppliers for this aspect of the works.
The workshop will take place on 19 August 10am– 2pm at:
North East Scotland College
Aberdeenshire, AB43 9GA
