Moray Offshore Windfarm : Lamprell announces sail away of transition pieces


Lamprell, renowned for delivering services to the global energy sector, recently celebrated the successful and punctual sail away of the inaugural batch of transition pieces. These were produced using its newly commissioned renewables production line, specifically catering to Moray Offshore Windfarm (West) Limited.

Project Details and Future Plans

The collaboration between Lamprell and Moray West saw both entities pooling their resources and expertise. Together, they guaranteed the smooth sail away of the premier set of wind turbine generator and offshore substation platform transition pieces. Spawned from a project agreement in 2022, Lamprell’s commitment includes crafting 62 transition pieces and shipping them to a UK marshalling harbour. Consecutive batch deliveries are slated for the upcoming months.

“Not only is our production line a first-of-its-kind facility in the Middle East, but the transition pieces – in terms of diameter – are a unique and original product type designed to withstand the harshest offshore conditions while maximising energy production. We could not have achieved this without the teamwork and cooperation the Moray West team provided. I am extremely proud of this achievement and look forward to successfully delivering the rest of the transition pieces throughout 2023.”
