Planning consent for an eight turbine 6MW offshore wind farm around 15 kilometres south-east of Aberdeen has been granted by the Scottish Minister for Business, Innovation and Energy, Paul Wheelhouse.
The floating development by Kincardine Offshore Windfarm Limited will:
- Support the creation of around 110 jobs during assembly, installation and through ongoing operations and maintenance activities
- Have a generating capacity up to a maximum of 50MW – enough to power the equivalent of almost 56,000 homes
- Prevent CO2 emissions of more than 94,500 tonnes per year
