Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Ltd (BOWL), a joint venture partnership formed between SSE Renewables (75%) and Repsol Nuevas Energias UK (25%), welcomed the decision by Marine Scotland to grant consent to the £ 3 billion Beatrice offshore wind farm project, situated in the Outer Moray Firth.
The announcement marks another positive step in the BOWL project’s development following almost five years of engagement, constructive dialogue, environmental studies, engineering surveys and assessments. The wind farm has the potential to generate up to 750MW of renewable energy. The project consent marks a positive step forward for BOWL, and it will now assess how to progress Beatrice over the coming months, taking account of all of the public policy, procurement and other issues that have to be considered before a final investment decision can be made.
