Global Maritime (GM) have recently concluded the latest work scopes on the Kincardine Offshore Windfarm, developed and built by the Cobra Group . Kincardine is the world’s largest floating offshore wind farm consisting of 5 x 9.5MW and 1 x 2MW wind turbine generators and is located 8 nautical miles off the coast of Aberdeen, Scotland.

The scope of work included providing Marine Warranty Services for the transport and installation of the WTGs, floating foundations, and subsea infrastructure.
Our involvement in the project started early with Document Review: early engagement feasibility studies, T&I documentation, design basis and port & logistic information. GM were also involved in vessel suitability surveys and approval of equipment.
The project was run from our UK offices in Aberdeen, Glasgow and London and is another example of our strong and varied capabilities in offshore renewable energy.

“We are extremely proud of our involvement in the Kincardine project” stated Jonny Logan, CEO from Global Maritime “Being able to provide local support and content through our Scottish offices is important to us and, we wish the Kincardine project continued success”

Now completed, the 50MW offshore wind farm is expected to generate over 200GWh of clean electricity a year, enough to power more than 50,000 Scottish households.

“We would like to thank Global Maritime for their support to our project” stated Jaime Altolaguirre, KOWL’s managing director from Cobra “We were pleased to be able to utilise Global Maritime’s expertise through their locally based team in Aberdeen"
