About the Project
Muir Mhòr Offshore Wind Farm is leveraging decades of industry expertise to deliver one of the world’s first commercially-viable floating wind projects, to leading standards of health and safety.
The site’s deep water conditions are well-suited to floating turbine technology, and its location and size allow for efficient project delivery – utilising nearby ports and mobilising the strong marine supply chain on the east coast of Scotland.
Having been awarded seabed rights in the January 2022 Scotwind auction, the project is at an early stage of development. Ecological and environmental survey work is currently underway in collaboration with other developers, which will inform our approach to the project.
We are awaiting the final grid connection location, and intend to work closely with communities on the onshore aspects of our proposal from an early stage. We will begin consultation with the community on an initial proposal in 2023.
Subject to planning and grid infrastructure provision, we are on schedule to generate in 2030 – putting the UK on track to meet its target of 5GW of floating wind by 2030.
