Building Scotland's largest offshore wind farm

The £3bn Seagreen offshore wind farm development is under construction.

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

Phase One within the Zone includes the development of two offshore windfarms Seagreen Alpha and Seagreen Bravo, located over 27km from the Angus coastline.

 

Seagreen Phase One is forecast to provide low carbon energy for around 1.3 million homes.

 

Installation of the onshore cable will begin in Autumn 2020

Onshore cable installation

We will begin to install the onshore export cable along the c.19km cable route between Carnoustie and Tealing in Autumn 2020.

 

Work to establish a construction compound adjacent to the Carnoustie Links Golf Course commenced in August ahead of the main cable installation works beginning.

We had planned to hold Public Information Exhibitions in local venues but the COVID-19 restrictions and associated Government guidance meant that were unable to do this.  Therefore, we have provided the information that would normally be available at face to face events on our website providing a 'virtual' exhibition.
