Kent has been awarded a contract by Spiorad na Mara Limited for the pre-front end engineering design (Pre-FEED) assessment of the proposed Spiorad na Mara offshore wind farm. The project, formerly known as N4, will play a significant role in helping Scotland achieve its net zero emissions target by 2045.

Located approximately 5-13 kilometres off the west coast of the Isle of Lewis, the project is owned by Northland Power (75.5%) and ESB (24.5%), with Northland leading on the development, construction, and operation. With a potential capacity of around 900 MW, it could meet the average annual electricity needs of around 815,000 Scottish homes and save more than 1.36 million tonnes of harmful CO2 emissions every year.

Kent has been entrusted with the crucial task of conducting a comprehensive assessment for the Wind Turbine Generator (WTG) foundation concept, selection, and foundation sizing. This responsibility underlines Kent's expertise and commitment to excellence at the Pre-FEED stage of project development, utilising the site information available to ensure the foundation's integrity and reliability.

Cerianne Cummings, UK Offshore Wind Director at Kent, commented on the contract, "We are honoured to play a role in the development of the Spiorad na Mara offshore wind farm. This project is not just about advancing renewable energy; it's about setting a benchmark for sustainable development in the offshore wind sector. Our team is committed to delivering a concept study that meets the highest standards of safety, efficiency, and environmental stewardship."

The award of this contract followed a competitive bidding process, highlighting Kent's technical capabilities and the trust that industry leaders place in the company. Kent's involvement in the Spiorad na Mara project underscores the company's position as a frontrunner in supporting the transition to renewable energy and its dedication to contributing to the UK's ambitious Net Zero 2050 targets.
