These offshore wind farms will play a significant role in achieving Scotland’s net zero targets, generating cleaner, home-grown electricity and providing energy security for future generations.
The consultation events will be an opportunity to meet the development team and find out more about the projects and the areas under consideration for landfall, cable corridors and onshore substations.
With each of the four projects at an early stage of development, this is an ideal opportunity for local stakeholders and communities to provide feedback which could help shape and inform the projects going forward.
The Broadshore Hub comprises three floating offshore wind farms (Broadshore, Sinclair and Scaraben) which will be located approximately 47 km north of Fraserburgh and with the capacity to generate up to 1.1 gigawatts of renewable electricity. The power from the offshore wind farms will come ashore via underground cabling and connect to the National Electricity Transmission System via new substations in the vicinity of Peterhead.
The Bellrock Offshore Wind Farm will be located 120 km east of Stonehaven and will have the capacity to produce up to 1.2 gigawatts of renewable electricity. The power from the offshore wind farm will connect to the National Electricity Transmission System offshore, around 60 km east of Stonehaven.
