Helix Robotics Solutions to support launch of Neart na Gaoithe offshore wind farm

Helix Robotics Solutions Limited has been awarded three scopes of work for the Neart na Gaoithe (NnG) offshore wind farm project by EDF Renewables.

Published on 18 December, the project will be managed and overseen by the core team in Aberdeen, supported by specialist subcontractors within Scotland and the wider UK.

The project will include three phases: the investigation of potential unexploded ordnances (UXOs); UXO detonation and boulder relocation.

The project has potential to generate 450MW of renewable energy, enough power to supply around 375,000 Scottish homes and offset over 400,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year.

Offshore construction is scheduled to start in June 2020 and full commissioning is expected to complete in 2023.
