RES Offshore has won a contract with Moray Offshore Renewables Limited - a joint venture between EDP Renewables and Repsol Nuevas Energias UK - to provide management contractor services for the first project within the Moray Firth round-3 zone, located off the north-east coast of Scotland.
RES Offshore’s expertise will contribute to ongoing Front End Engineering Design (FEED) and procurement processes as the project progresses towards Final Investment Decision, with the experienced team providing specialist engineering and project management services. This expertise is testament to the capability and credibility RES Offshore brings from other projects in UK waters and further afield.
Chris Morgan, CEO of RES Offshore, commented;
“Competition for these contracts is now fierce, so this contract award recognises RES Offshore’s ability to competitively apply its knowledge to meet our customers’ needs. This is a fantastic opportunity to work with Moray Offshore Renewables and to help take this project through to construction. We hope that this is the beginning of a long-term relationship with Moray Offshore Renewables.”
Project Director for Moray Offshore Renewables Ltd, and Managing Director of EDPR UK, Dan Finch said:
“This contract marks another important milestone in the delivery of offshore wind generation in the outer Moray Firth. This project will be a game-changer for the industry by leading commercial-scale deployment in deeper water. The application of RES’ experience to the MORL project will create opportunities for innovation and cost reduction across the whole supply chain, which is critical in an emerging global market for offshore wind.”
