SSE Renewables took a step forward in the planning process for its Berwick Bank Wind Farm, highlighting how it will reduce the impact of the site on key seabird populations.
Following feedback from stakeholders and despite soaring prices for seabed in recent leasing processes, SSE Renewables will not be looking to develop the entire area available for Berwick Bank. Instead, it will reduce the overall size of the site by around 10% compared to the area available for development in order to mitigate the potential impact on the local seabird populations. Berwick Bank is also proposing to raise the minimum height of the turbine blades from 22m to 37m above sea level to address for bird passage through the site.
