February 2023

The Moray West offshore wind farm project has awarded Sarens PSG with a contract to marshall 62 XXL-sized monopiles at Invergordon Port in Scotland. Sarens PSG SPMTs will offload and transport the monopiles as they arrive in Invergordon in mid-2023, with work continuing for several months in preparation for installation at the offshore wind farm. Each of these massive monopiles weighs close to 2.000 tonnes, making these the largest and heaviest ever to be handled in the UK! 

The Sarens and PSG Marine & Logistics joint venture is based at Invergordon Service Base and is positioned to serve future customers in the fixed and floating offshore wind market. Formed in the summer of 2022, Sarens PSG is set to offer heavy lift design, implementation, and transport and logistics services to customers across Scotland, starting with the Moray West project.

“We are delighted that the capabilities of the Sarens PSG joint venture have enhanced the offering to meet the needs of Moray West,” said Pete Geddes, EPC Director for Ocean Winds in the UK with responsibility for Moray West. “Handling the XXL monopiles will be a first. The track record of Sarens and PSG, together with their large fleet of SPMTs, provided key confidence to make this selection.”

“The combination of strategically located deep-water heavy lift quaysides and vast adjacent laydown, combined with Sarens PSG’s heavy lift and transport experience, engineering capacities, and market-leading equipment provision makes Invergordon and Sarens PSG the ideal and compelling choice for the project,” said Steve Clark, Managing Director at Sarens PSG. “We are delighted to be supporting the Moray West project team as they move into the offshore construction phase.”

The Moray West project, developed by Ocean Winds, is located on Moray Firth, a North Sea inlet some 22 kilometres off the coast of Scotland. Once completed, it will boast 60 SG 14-222 DD Siemens Gamesa wind turbines with an installed capacity of 882MW. 

Moray West’s development comes after the completion of the Moray East offshore wind farm, which is now fully operational and boasts 100 9.5MW wind turbines. More information about the project can be found at and Further information about the Sarens PSG joint venture can also be found at
