An increase in the potential overall project capacity from 2.6GW to up to 3.6GW has been identified for the proposed Ossian Wind Farm off the East Coast of Scotland.
 
The Ossian project is being delivered by a partnership of SSE Renewables, Marubeni Corporation (Marubeni) and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP). In recent months the Ossian project completed a full geophysical and benthic survey of the project area. The data collected has informed a review of the potential wind farm capacity. Subject to undertaking the necessary further environmental and technical assessments, the site could be used to generate the increased capacity of up to 3.6GW. 
 
Floating LiDAR equipment is now acquiring data at the Ossian site having been deployed by metocean company Partrac. The company has placed Eolos FLS 200 FLiDAR equipment across two locations at the Ossian site with the aim of measuring wind speed and direction to help determine the best locations and positions for wind turbines. Partrac have also deployed their metocean equipment consisting of three wave buoys and three subsea moorings at three locations. The installed equipment will measure the waves, current, tidal levels, turbidity, conductivity, and temperature.
