ESB has joined with Edinburgh-based Red Rock Power Limited to form a 50:50 joint venture for Inch Cape Offshore Limited, an offshore wind farm development off the east coast of Scotland.
Inch Cape is set to be constructed 15km off the Angus Coast in the East of Scotland. The project recently received approval to increase its capacity to up to 1GW having already secured both onshore and offshore consents in 2019. The wind farm will connect into the national grid at Cockenzie in East Lothian.
ESB operates across the electricity market on the island of Ireland: from generation, through transmission and distribution to the supply of customers with an expanding presence across Great Britain. In 2017 ESB opened an office in Glasgow to spearhead further development of renewables, in particular onshore and offshore wind, across Scotland. Red Rock Power Limited is a wholly-owned UK subsidiary of SDIC Power Holdings Co. Ltd, based in Beijing, China.
