We've been awarded a contract for the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) with an option for an extension to the Detailed Design of WTG foundations for the Morgan and Mona wind farms. The wind farms are located in the Irish Sea, spanning a combined area of ~800 km2 and are expected to generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of around 3.4 million homes. The project will use fixed-bottom turbines in approximately 35m of water.
The FEED, expected to last 6 months, will involve engineering design work that informs foundation selection, demonstrates feasibility, and provides a robust design to manage project risk and engagement with fabrication and T&I contractors.
The Morgan and Mona offshore wind farms could play a significant role in contributing to the UK’s 50GW offshore wind target by 2030. Kent is currently also undertaking the design for a further 7GW in new UK projects.
