JFMS cements its reputation as market leader with latest MeyGen tidal turbine installation
James Fisher Marine Services continues to set the standard for tidal turbine installation with its latest redeployment of two Andritz turbines at MeyGen 1A tidal array in Scotland’s Pentland Firth.
The reinstallation was completed successfully, with the offshore works for both turbine installations and connection to the grid carried out to schedule. The turbines have both since resumed operation generating tidal power to the grid.
JFMS, which achieved preferred O&M supplier status with MeyGen in 2016 for a period of 5 years, deployed the initial Andritz turbines last November and was on hand to recover them earlier this year to enable system enhancements. This installation follows other successful operations completed for leading engineering companies Sabella, Voith and MCT, which has helped ensure JFMS’ position as the leader in this field.
David Taaffe, director of project delivery at Atlantis said of the reinstallation:
“JFMS has been on hand throughout the entirety of the MeyGen tidal energy project providing vital expertise and advice during the installation of the offshore cables and turbines.
We are delighted to see another offshore construction campaign at MeyGen successfully completed and this is a credit to the expertise and professionalism of the MeyGen project team, JFMS and all the contractors involved in the load out, reinstallation and reconnection of the two Andritz turbines”
Andreas Hibler, offshore project manager at JFMS, added:
“The successful redeployment of the Andritz turbines at the MeyGen array was completed quickly and efficiently thanks to our experienced team.
“We are looking forward to continuing our working relationship with MeyGen and seeing all four tidal turbines resume operation in the very near future”.
JFMS mobilised a full cable spread on the vessel Olympic Ares and is due to install the third tidal turbine later on this year.
