Views sought on next phase for Moray windfarm

Renewables news

A public consultation will be held to discuss the next phase of a major north-east windfarm.

Plans were drawn up in 2016 to expand the Moray East Offshore Windfarm westward, and now the public will be invited to give their views on what the project will mean for them later this month.

The proposals are being developed by Moray Offshore Windfarm Ltd and will be discussed on Monday, from noon to 8pm, at the Station Hotel in Portsoy.

At the meeting, talks will focus on the next phase of the development and the on-shore infrastructure which is proposed to be funneled through the Blackhillock substation near Keith.

It will also include information on proposals for the installation of submarine cables off the north-east coast.

The east phase of the project won planning permission last year, and could sell green energy to the national grid for the next 15 years.

It will power up to 950,000 homes – about twice the output of the Beatrice field.

The project, which is known as Moray East, will lead to 100 turbines up to 669ft tall being built about 13 miles off the north-east coast, was first mooted four years ago.

Buckie Harbour is poised to benefit, with jobs created during the construction and maintenance of the turbines.

About 100 staff will be ferried out to a large vessel from the Moray port to work offshore for up to two weeks at a time.
