SAIPEM 7000 is one of the world’s largest offshore construction vessels. She is working for the big windfarm NnG (Neart na Gaoithe ‘strength of the wind’) and laying casings for piles. She is easily visible from Dunbar Battery, 22 miles offshore, just look on the horizon, to the right of the Isle of May. The decks are below the horizon but the cranes are highly-visible, yellow in colour.

The NnG cables will come ashore at Thorntonloch Beach and join the National Grid in the Lammermuirs, near the windfarms there.

Note: SAIPEM is a Pipelay Crane Vessel, built 1987, sailing under the flag of The Bahamas, with a length of 175 meters and width of 87 meters and will be 'on station' for many months.
