Scottish Government Ministers approve the proposal by SSE Renewables and TotalEnergies for 110km export cable connecting 36 offshore wind turbines to the UK national grid.
The Marine Licence covers the offshore elements of the project, including an export cable approximately 110km in length, to connect the project to the grid at Cockenzie in East Lothian. All 150 offshore turbines are consented and the first 114 of these have a grid connection into Tealing, Angus, and are currently under construction in the Firth of Forth. The Seagreen 1A proposal is to connect the remaining 36 turbines to the grid and the Marine Licence paves the way for the offshore elements to connect these turbines at Cockenzie. Seagreen 1A will hold Meet the Developer events in East Lothian to outline to local businesses the opportunities connected to the project and plan public consultation events on the design of the onshore substation plans in 2022.
