PSG Marine & Logistics Secures Further Contracts On Moray East

Invergordon based PSG, the leading provider of logistical, port marshalling & marine support services has secured three new contracts in support of Moray East OWF project.

The first contract has been awarded to PSG by Deme Offshore, the Belgium based EPCI contractor. PSG recently delivered a major foundation port marshalling scope on the same project, and this year will provide full feeder port logistical services in relation to jacket grouting operations on Moray East.
The project will be executed at a dedicated quayside facility at Invergordon, involving the handling of 14000mt of grout used during the installation of the 103 jackets currently being installed on the project, involving over 30 vessel mobilisations and will see the full suite of PSG’s logistical support services deployed in supporting the operation.
PSG have also secured two major contracts from MHI Vestas Offshore Wind in support of the WTG ( wind turbine generator ) pre-assembly works due to start at Invergordon shortly. PSG will provide a range of specialist lifting & access equipment required in the pre-assembly process and a further contract to provide heavy lift teams for the discharge and handling of WTG components as they arrive at the port in the coming weeks and months.

The project’s scope includes the heavy lift and transport of over 2000 Te of anchor chain, 180 clump weights and 15 drag anchors. As with all technically demanding projects of this nature, PSG’s engineering team are working to deliver all heavy lift and transport services with the utmost adherence to client specification and safety procedures.

Steve Clark, MD of PSG Marine & Logistics stated:

“I am delighted to have secured these further contracts at such a testing time for local businesses. Including our recent award for the Kincardine floating offshore wind farm contract, the total value of new contracts secured this year by PSG in this sector is over £4m and will see our operational workforce double in the coming weeks, bringing much-needed employment opportunities to the local area. PSG has been involved in delivering major scopes on the Moray East Project since 2018, demonstrating PSG’s reputation as a local company that can support and deliver on these multi-billion pound infrastructure projects.
This award is to be our first floating wind contract, and we are keen to use this opportunity to showcase PSG’s capabilities within this developing sector.”

Semi-submersible wind turbines at the Kincardine Offshore Floating Wind Farm

The project’s scope includes the heavy lift and transport of over 2000 Te of anchor chain, 180 clump weights and 15 drag anchors. As with all technically demanding projects of this nature, PSG’s engineering team are working to deliver all heavy lift and transport services with the utmost adherence to client specification and safety procedures.

Steve Clark, MD of PSG Marine & Logistics stated:

“We are delighted to secure this offshore wind port marshalling contract. PSG is a well-established logistical servicing company and a key member of the supply chain supporting the offshore energy markets in the Cromarty Firth. We have successfully executed a number of major port marshalling scopes, including fixed foundation offshore wind contracts staged at the Port of Cromarty Firth. Most recent of these was the Moray East OWF project.

This award is to be our first floating wind contract, and we are keen to use this opportunity to showcase PSG’s capabilities within this developing sector.”

PSG has invested heavily in technologically advanced solutions, personnel and facilities, ensuring that all heavy lift and transport services provided remain scaleable and compliant with the increasing demands of the offshore and renewables sectors.

A full range of state-of-the-art quayside support, heavy lift and transportation equipment are being utilised as part of the offshore wind port marshalling project, including heavy lift cranes with up to 500Te capacity. A skilled team of support personnel specialising in heavy transport, lifting and engineering will facilitate the project.

Multi-purpose offshore construction vessel “Boka Falcon” will then transport the loaded equipment to the site of the Kincardine Wind Farm Project.

The Kincardine Offshore Wind Farm project is being developed approximately 15km from the coastline of Aberdeen, and will be comprised of one 2MW MHI Vestas turbine as well as five 9.5 MW MHI Vestas turbines, each installed on triangular semi-submersible foundations. Once completed, Kincardine Offshore Wind Farm will be the world’s largest floating wind farm project with a nominal capacity of 50MW. This project will be the first in the world to use floating wind turbines of over 9MW capacity.

The project is currently on track to be completed and fully operational by the end of 2020, at which point it will generate up to 218GWh of green energy per year, enough to supply power to around 55,000 households.

Boskalis, which conducts major marine projects in over 90 countries, is supporting the installation of the first semi-submersible floating turbines in the North Sea.

Previously the Dutch firm has supported turbine installation at the Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm, where major innovations in suction bucket foundation installation technology were implemented for the first time.

The floating wind farm market is set to continue to grow for many years, aided in part by the versatility of the technology and the ability to deploy installations at shallower water depths.

Offshore wind is set to kick off a major renewables surge within Scottish waters

As the renewables industry continues to pursue the best wind resources, the opportunities for growth within Scotland’s offshore services and support sectors continue to expand. PSG Marine & Logistics are already exploring upcoming prospects within emerging energy projects, including the upcoming ScotWind Leasing Round.

The ScotWind Leasing projects form part of a major development and investment drive in offshore wind farms within Scottish waters and have been hailed as a major step towards delivering Scotland’s energy targets, with 50% of Scotland’s energy consumption to be supplied by renewable sources by 2030.

Steve Clark, MD is focusing on putting PSG Marine & Logistics at the leading edge of this new renewables surge;

“The Crown Estate Scotland is launching the 10GW ScotWind offshore wind leasing round, the first in Scottish waters for a decade which has been well documented. PSG are investing heavily in our operations, equipment and workforce to ensure we are fully prepared to play a key role in developing these once in a generation contracts from Port of the Cromarty Firth.”

Up and coming wind farm projects in Scottish waters are set to create over 3,000 green energy jobs, and represent multi-billion pound investments to benefit communities across the whole of Scotland.

PSG is continuing to work as key members of the supply chain supporting the offshore energy markets in the Cromarty Firth and beyond, driving value through superior investment, experience and resources. The firm continues to develop and expand service provision at the Invergordon deepwater facility, serving the offshore wind, renewable energy and oil & gas sectors with high-level quayside support, vessel mobilisation, marine logistics, port agency, heavy lift and transport services.
