In the Moray Firth, located in northern Scotland, first power has been successfully achieved from the first series of wind turbines as part of the Moray West Offshore Wind Farm and exported to the National Electricity Transmission System (NETS).

Following the installation of all foundations, the offshore substations, and array cables, the rest of the turbine components are currently being pre-assembled at the Port of Nigg prior to offshore installation. At the onshore substation, construction work is being finalised on the second circuit, following the commissioning of the first. The export cables are in place, buried within the pre-defined cable corridor, completing the electrical connection between the wind turbines and the NETS at Blackhillock substation.

Construction vessels have used the ports of Invergordon and Nigg in the Cromarty Firth, while Crew Transfer Vessels (CTVs) operate from Buckie harbour in Moray. The 882 MW wind farm, developed by Ocean Winds, is nearing the end of the construction phase and will become fully operational in 2025.
