New Consent Given For Neart na Gaoithe Offshore Wind Farm

Construction News Image
The Scottish Government has given its consent for an improved design for the Neart na Gaoithe (NnG) offshore wind farm.

The updated consent, which was given to EDF Renewables UK, will allow the wind farm to be constructed using fewer, but higher capacity, turbines which will generate the same 450MW output of renewable energy.

The original consent for NnG, located in the Firth of Forth off the east coast of Scotland, was for a maximum of 75 turbines. The new design will feature a maximum of 54 turbines with a maximum of 208 metres tip height above sea level which means the project will use the latest advances in offshore wind technology.

The wind farm is expected to be operational by 2023 and the total investment required to deliver the project is around £1.8 billion. In line with EDF Group's usual practice, the project will be open to other investors in due course.
