Spanish-German wind company Siemens Gamesa has secured an order for 882MW Scottish offshore wind project Moray West, according to a press release issued by Siemens Gamesa Wednesday evening.

The order in question consists of 60 SG 14-222 DD offshore turbines. Installation is expected to begin in 2024, and first power from the project is expected the very same year. This project will also be the first to see Siemens Gamesa’s new 14MW turbines in operation.

The agreement also comes with a service agreement, but there is no word on how many years it spans.

”Successfully signing the firm order for Moray West serves to further cement Siemens Gamesa as the leader of the offshore revolution,” says Chief Executive Officer of the Offshore Business Unit at Siemens Gamesa Marc Becker.

The Spanish-German wind turbine maker was last year named the preferred supplier for Moray West.

Moray West is owned by Ocean Winds, a joint venture between EDP Renewables and Engie.
