An Aberdeen subsea company has landed a contract to clear the seabed for a major windfarm development.
The team from Oceaneering will take on the work for the Moray East Offshore project.
It will clear the seabed route for the scheme in the Moray Firth.
Oceaneering will use a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) survey and personnel to complete seabed route and debris clearance operations for the windfarm’s export cable routes.
The project, which will be completed in the second quarter of this year, is the latest to be secured by the firm for Moray East.

Marcel Sunier from Moray East said: “Oceaneering has a proven track record of providing boulder clearance services.
