SSE Renewables’ Seagreen 2 and 3 offshore wind farms are to be renamed to Berwick Bank wind farm and Marr Bank wind farm, respectively. The two projects are located in the North Sea beyond the Firth of Forth. Berwick Bank sits 54km off the Angus coast at its closest point and Marr Bank sits over 43km off the coast.
 
The move to rename the projects is to distinguish the two standalone offshore wind farms from neighbouring project, Seagreen 1. All three Seagreen sites were awarded exclusive development rights by the Crown Estate in 2010 but are now progressing on separate tracks, with Seagreen 1 having reached a final investment decision in June 2020. The new names are a nod to the geological history of each site.
 
The proposed installed capacity of Berwick Bank is between 1,400MW and 2,300MW and Marr Bank is between 900MW and 1,850MW. Berwick Bank and Marr Bank are both at the development stage of their projects. Berwick Bank could be operational as soon as 2027 with Marr Bank following slightly later timescales. Berwick Bank wind farm has secured a grid connection at Branxton, near Torness, in East Lothian.
