    Company Ocean Winds awarded right to develop in Moray Firth

    January 28, 2022 - The Northern Scot


      INTERNATIONAL offshore wind energy company Ocean Winds has been awarded the right to develop in the outer Moray Firth.

      The company, created by EDP Renewables and Engie, has been allowed to develop new wind generation capacity as part of the ScotWind process, run by Crown Estate Scotland.

      Bids to develop the 440 km2 site – designated as NE4 by Marine Scotland in 2020 – were invited by the Scottish Government in summer 2021 as part of a competitive process to make new seabed areas available for electricity generation.

      It was the first time in a decade that new sites in Scottish waters have been made available for offshore wind.

      NE4 has been named Caledonia Offshore Wind Farm by Ocean Winds. The site lies to the east of Scotland’s largest wind farm, the Moray East Offshore Wind Farm, which Ocean Winds began developing in 2010 and whose commercial operational date is expected beginning of 2022. Output from the Caledonia Offshore Wind Farm is expected to meet the needs of more than a million UK households, and consideration is being given to using part of the output for green hydrogen production.

      Development will commence early next year and it is anticipate delivery will be in this decade.
