OFFSHORE WIND PROJECT

This offshore wind project will consist of...

OUR ACTIVITY

The Project

The project is in the early stages of development and the final decision on the project total capacity, turbine technology, rotor diameter, tip height and number of turbines will be made during the project development and design process.  There will be a number of ongoing surveys and other activities which will continue up until planning permission submission to enable us to make informed decisions about the design of the project. 

Feedback we receive from our consultations with the public, local communities, fisheries/seafood industry, public bodies, agencies and other consultees throughout the project development phase will help shape the project.
