Lerwick Port Authority ESB sign wind farm MoULerwick Port Authority has entered its first collaboration agreement aimed at providing support for the development and operation of a floating offshore wind farm with ESB, an Irish energy company.
 
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed Wednesday, 20 September 2023 in Lerwick between the Authority and ESB. This agreement commits both organisations to work together to develop port solutions for delivering the offshore development and ongoing operations and maintenance activities for the 500 MW wind farm, east of Shetland. Seabed development rights were awarded to ESB in 2022 by Crown Estate Scotland through the ScotWind leasing process. Currently in early-stage development, the project is in a 100km² area identified in the Scottish Government’s Sectoral Marine Plan for Offshore Wind. It is approximately 40km off Shetland, in water depths between 100m and 130m.
