Welcome

As of September 2018, SSE has taken full ownership of the offshore wind projects under development by Seagreen Wind Energy Limited, in which it previously had a 50% share. SSE acquired the other half of the offshore wind joint venture from Fluor Ltd

Seagreen Wind Energy Limited, was awarded by The Crown Estate the exclusive development rights for the Firth of Forth Zone of the UK's Round 3 offshore wind farm development programme. 

The Zone is located approximately 25km east of Fife and covers an area of 2,852km2 in the outer Firth of Forth. The Zone has a potential installed capacity of 2.45GW which would be a significant contribution to Scotlandís renewable energy generation capacity. 

Seagreen is working closely with the appropriate stakeholders and undertaking the surveys and assessments required for consent applications of a number of projects in the Zone. The Zone is being developed in two phases with Phase 1 (1.05GW) in the northern area of the Zone being developed first, followed by Phase 2 (1.4GW) in the south eastern area. See Reports for more information.

In October 2014, following submission of a comprehensive Environmental Statement and further detailed consultation with the relevant statutory bodies to complete the Habitats Regulations Assessment process, Seagreen Wind Energy Ltd received consent for Phase 1 of the development from Scottish Ministers for two offshore wind farms, Seagreen Alpha and Seagreen Bravo. These projects each have a capacity of 525MW. See Project Updates for the latest information.

The renewable energy generated from the Phase 1 projects will be delivered to the national electricity transmission network via underground cables to a new onshore substation adjacent to the existing electricity substation at Tealing near Dundee. The onshore elements of the project have Planning Permission in Principal from Angus Council.
