Seaway 7 Awarded EPIC of Moray West Inter-Aray Cables

Seaway 7 is pleased to announce that it has signed a Letter of Award with Moray Offshore
Windfarm (West) Limited, to commence early works on the Engineering, Procurement,
Installation and Commissioning (EPIC) of inter-array grid cables for the Moray West offshore
wind farm.

The Moray West offshore wind farm development is located on the East coast of Scotland in
the Moray firth, approximately 22.5 km from the Caithness coastline. The development will
be comprised of 60 wind turbine generators with an installed capacity of 882MW.

Seaway 7’s scope is under final negotiation and may include the supply and installation of
approximately 125 km of 66 kV subsea power cables and respective cable protection
systems. The company will utilise vessels from its state-of-the-art cable lay fleet which will
commence work on the project in 2024. Execution of the scope will be led from Seaway 7’s
Aberdeen office.

The Moray West project recently obtained a Contract for Difference (CfD) as part of the UK
Government’s latest CfD Allocation Round. The project is expected to reach financial close
(FC) in the coming months, with first power expected in 2024.

Once executed, Moray West will represent a sizeable contract, between $50m and $150m, agreement. The contract will not be recognised in Seaway 7’s backlog until FC has been reached.
