A Montrose construction firm with its roots in the local area going back five generations has been appointed by SSE Renewables to carry out the works on the Seagreen wind farm operations and maintenance base to be located at Montrose Port.
Pert-Bruce Construction were awarded the prestigious contract in October and will start on site this week. Located at the Port’s South Quay, the base will include an operations building, repurposed warehouse, communications tower, and a pontoon for crew transfer vessels travelling to the Seagreen wind farm site 27km off the Angus coast.
Work on the operations building and repurposed warehouse is scheduled to take around a year and will all be carried out by Pert-Bruce and several local subcontractors. The operations building was previously used by an oil industry supply chain company in Aberdeen and will be regenerated as part of efforts to contribute to the circular economy.
Managing Director, Craig Bruce said, “We are delighted to be involved in such an exciting development which will have huge benefits safeguarding 25 -30 jobs over the year within our business and our wider supply chain. Being awarded a contract to be part of the largest offshore wind farm in Scotland by SSE Renewables is testament to our diverse capabilities, loyal workforce, and reputation for excellence.
