Seaway Heavy Lifting has installed the last of 86 jacket foundations at the SSE-led 588MW Beatrice offshore wind farm off the coast of Scotland.

The vessel Oleg Strashnov completed the task, with the company's Stanislav Yudin vessel having installed the piles.


The wind farm, which is located in the Moray Firth, is being developed by SSE, Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and Red Rock Power, the UK subsidiary of Chinese outfit SDIC Power Holdings.

Beatrice will comprise 84 Siemens 7MW turbines and is expected to be fully operational in 2019.
