Chinese yard Dajin Offshore Heavy Industry has clinched a deal with Siemens Gamesa to supply wind towers for Ocean Winds’ Moray West offshore wind farm in Scotland in the UK.
Dajin said that lead contractor Siemens Gamesa has subcontracted it to build 12 sets of wind towers for the 860-megawatt Moray West wind farm.
Siemens Gamesa has been earlier contracted to supply wind turbines for Ocean Winds – a joint venture between power giants EDPR and Engie.
Ocean Winds said Moray West will see its first power as soon as 2024.
Earlier this year, Dajin was contracted by Ocean Winds to supply 48 monopiles and 30 monopiles transition pieces for the Moray West project.
In another development, the Dajin yard in north-eastern China’s Liaoning city has also won a contract from French player Eoliennes en Mer Iles d’Yeu et de Noirmoutier (EMYN) to supply 62 sets of monopiles for the NOY - Ile D'Yeu et Noirmoutier offshore wind project in France.
EMYN is a consortium between French and Portuguese utilities Engie and EDPR, as well as the Banque des Territoires.
The contracts combined are valued at 122.8 million euros ($121.62 million).
Established in 2000, Dajin focuses on onshore and offshore wind structures engineering, procurement and construction work.
