The Moray Firth is used by a wide range of mariners for both commercial and recreation purposes. We aim to work closely with other mariners through construction and operation of Moray West, enabling everyone to operate safely with minimum of disruption.
In particular, construction of the offshore wind farm will mean that a wide range of different vessels of different sizes, with different capabilities will be in the Moray Firth, undertaking works to install and commission infrastructure.
Guard vessels will operate to provide for safe operations, helping to enable other vessels to avoid inadvertently sailing into areas where works are being undertaken.
In addition to Notices to Mariners, throughout construction we will issue Weekly Notices of Operations and Vessel Specification and Contractor Reports. These will be posted on this web page, and will also be supplied to Marine Scotland, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency and the Northern Lighthouse Board.
