Two 160-ton shunt reactors and two 180-ton super grid transformers have been delivered to the East Lothian onshore substation where both stages of the project are completed, with both reactors and transformers offloaded by Collett’s Heavy Lift team and positioned using hydraulic jacking and skidding systems.

The wind farm will feature up to 64 turbines with a planned capacity of 450 MW. At that capacity, the farm will be capable of powering up to 391,000 homes. EDF Renewables UK and ESB Group are the project owners. The farm is 15.5 kilometers off the Fife coast and covers an area of about 105 square kilometers.
