The delivery of the operational scopes, including towing the floater to Dundee, pre-laying the 4-leg mooring system and installing the fully assembled wind turbine on site, was optimized by taking advantage of the local supply chain.

BOURBON project management team worked in a close collaboration with the main contractor, Cobra Wind, the designer of the semi-submersible floating foundations, Principle Power, as well as the mooring system provider, Vryhof.
