    Plans are lodged for wind farm

    September 16, 2022 - John O'Groat Journal


      Plans have been lodged with Highland Council for a wind farm off the north coast of Caithness that will be the biggest of its kind in the world when complete.

      The proposed 100MW Pentland Floating Offshore Wind Farm (PFOWF) will see seven turbines up to 300m high to their blade tips being built around 7.5km offshore from Dounreay.

      It is being developed by Highland Wind Limited, which is majority owned by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) through one of its funds, and is due to be operational in 2026.

      Consent is being sought under Section 36 of the Electricity Act 1989 for the construction and operation of an offshore generating station. The application covers "up to seven floating wind turbines of up to 300m to blade-tip height, seven floating substructures with associated mooring lines and anchors/piles, inter-array cables, two export cables, landfall, and associated scour and cable protection measures".

      Two marine licence applications are also being applied for, under the Marine (Scotland) Act 2010.
