The facility in the Port of Cromarty Firth will serve as the base for the two projects off Scotland's east coast. It has already hosted the Xia Zhi Yuan vessel carrying the first gravity-base foundations for the met masts for the projects.

Construction of the 905MW Inch Cape and 1.1GW Moray Firth projects is not expected to start until next year at the earliest.

The Port of Cromarty Firth recently embarked on a £25 million expansion project, which will see it reclaim land from the sea and add a further deepwater berth to its port capabilities. The expansion will be completed by summer 2015.

It has already been involved with the initial test turbines that were installed at the nearby Beatrice offshore wind farm in 2010.
