Bp and EnBW partner with Kent to help create Morven offshore wind project

Morven offshore wind
  • Kent has been awarded a pre-FEED study for the Morven offshore wind project, which is expected to generate c.2.9GW some 60km offshore from Aberdeen.
  • The project will use fixed-bottom turbines in 65-75m of water, making it one of the deepest offshore wind developments in the world.
  • Awarded as part of the ScotWind leasing round to bp and EnBW, the project is expected to create an operations and maintenance base in Aberdeen and help contribute to the regeneration of the Port of Leith.

Kent is pleased to announce it has been awarded a pre–Front End Engineering Design (pre-FEED) study for the Morven offshore wind project, which is expected to generate enough to power the equivalent of around 3 million homes. A collaboration between bp and EnBW, the project will use fixed-bottom turbines in 65-75m of water as part of the ScotWind leasing round. Investment into the project by the partner companies will also include supporting the regeneration of the Port of Leith and create an operations and maintenance base in Aberdeen.

The pre-FEED studies which are expected to last 6 months, will involve engineering design work that supports key decisions, foundation type, corrosion protection concepts as well as transportation and installation feasibility. For delivery of this scope, Kent will work with trusted partners, Ternan Energy, to provide specialist Geotechnical services supplementing their in-house geotechnical capabilities.

Cerianne Cummings, Offshore Wind Market Director at Kent commented: “We are delighted to be awarded this project which adds to our portfolio of offshore wind projects in the North Sea. We look forward to working with our partners bp and EnBW on this exciting venture."

The Morven offshore wind project will play a role in helping to achieve Scotland’s offshore wind generation target of 11GW and the UK’s 50GW target by 2030. It is also expected to create thousands of jobs in both construction and operations over the lifetime of the project.

This marks another milestone in Kent's growing portfolio of offshore wind projects in the North Sea. This was the team responsible for design of the world-first deep water offshore wind jacket substructures for Beatrice Offshore Windfarm, which has since become one of Europe’s largest operational offshore wind farms. The Morven offshore wind project will add further capacity to this already impressive portfolio and help contribute towards Scotland's renewable energy goals.

Kent is one of the leading providers of engineering and design services to the global offshore wind industry, involved in developing 70% of all UK offshore wind farms and developing the first certified project using the PISA geotechnical design. In the last decade, Kent has delivered 11GW+ operational wind farms, 1,500+ offshore wind structures, and 20+ offshore substations.
