Oceaneering International Services (OISL), a subsidiary of US-based Oceaneering International, has been awarded a contract from Moray Offshore Windfarm East (MOWEL) to complete seabed route and debris clearance for the Moray East Wind Farm project in the Moray Firth, Scotland.

OISL will provide a full suite of services for the project, including vessel, route preparation tools, remotely operated vehicle (ROV), survey, and personnel to complete seabed route and debris clearance operations for the wind farm’s export cable routes.

The project will be completed early in the second quarter of this year.

The Moray East Offshore Wind Farm construction project is 22 kilometres off the Caithness coast. It is the second of three wind farms in the area and will consist of 100 wind turbines, providing an overall generating capacity of 950 MW, enough to power 950,000 homes.

Three 86-kilometre export cables from offshore to shore will transfer electricity from the wind farm.
