UK developer SSE Renewables said an offshore wind foundation installed at 58.6 metres for its Seagreen project off Scotland is the world’s deepest so far.

The 2,000-tonne jacket foundation was number 112 of 114 to be installed at the £3bn ($3.7bn) Seagreen, being jointly advanced by SSE and French oil & gas supermajor TotalEnergies.

The ultra-deep installation by the Saipem 7000 vessel beat the previous record set at the project in 2022 of 57.4
