June 23 (Renewables Now) - Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE) has secured a firm order to supply 882 MW of turbines for the Moray West offshore wind project off Scotland, the company said.

The order includes the delivery of 60 units of the SG 14-222 DD turbines, each of 14.7 MW, and a service agreement.

The 14-MW machine, which can generate up to 15 MW thanks to the Power Boost function, was launched in 2020. Moray West will be the first project to display it out in the sea when the installation starts in 2024, Siemens Gamesa said.

All 180 blade pieces, 108 metres (354.3 ft) long, will be manufactured in Siemens Gamesa’s factory in Hull, England.

The Moray West wind farm will be located some 22 kilometres (13.7 miles) off the coast of the Moray Council in north-east Scotland. First power is expected in 2024.

The project is owned by Ocean Winds, a 50/50 joint venture between energy companies EDP Renewables (ELI:EDPR) and Engie SA (EPA:ENGI). Lithuania’s Ignitis Group holds a small stake in the development.
