Plans to maximise the renewable energy potential of Seagreen offshore wind farm in Scotland have been given the green light by Scottish Ministers.  The Section 36C (S36C) application to increase the potential installed capacity of the project’s remaining 36 turbines from 360MW to up to 500MW has this week (10 October) been granted.
In total, the Seagreen project represents more than 1.5GW of potential installed capacity with 1.1GW already under construction.
Seagreen offshore wind farm is a joint venture by SSE Renewables (49%) and TotalEnergies (51%). All 150 offshore turbines are consented and the first 114 of these, which have a grid connection into Tealing, Angus, are under construction and the project achieved first power in August 2022.
The connection for these remaining turbines consists of an offshore cable corridor to landfall at Cockenzie and the onshore cable corridor and the onshore substation. In August 2021, planning permission in principle (PPP) for the substation and onshore cable infrastructure at Cockenzie was unanimously approved by East Lothian Council.
