Scotland’s largest offshore wind project begins to supply
Scotland’s largest offshore wind project, Moray East wind farm, has begun supplying power across the grid.
However, work is still yet to be done on the 950 MW windfarm, because not all of the 100 turbines had the ability to supply electric to the grid via it’s substation south of New Deer in Aberdeenshire.
The wind farm can be located over 22 kilometres from the shore and in depths of more than 50 metres.
“We look forward to completing Moray East to its full 950MW capacity, winning the Contract for Difference auction which will enable us to construct Moray West and to competing for ScotWind leases including development in the Moray Firth, all before the end of this year.” – Dan Finch, Managing Director of Ocean Winds UK Ltd
