The 1116MW Moray Offshore Wind Farm has been granted consent with Natural Power providing expert Consent Management and Ecology services to client Moray Offshore Renewables Ltd. (MORL).
The offshore wind farm, off the Caithness coast in the outer Moray Firth, Scotland, is the second largest of its kind consented in the UK. Moray Offshore Renewables Ltd., a joint venture between EDP Renewables (EDPR UK) and Repsol Nuevas Energias UK, appointed Natural Power as lead ornithology and marine mammal advisors during the scoping, Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and post-submission consultation stages of the projects’ development in August 2010. Natural Power commenced work on the Moray Offshore Wind Farm involving some 25 staff across a four year period. The Ecology, Hydrology, Planning and Development teams provided MORL with the offshore consulting services.
