Historic project underway

|4 April 2017|


One of Europe’s leading subsea technology firms has been selected to clear the way for a £2.6 billion offshore windfarm off the east coast Scotland.

Aberdeen’s Ecosse Subsea Systems (ESS) will deploy its underwater system to clear boulders from the seabed as work gets underway to bring the 84 turbine project online by 2019.

The Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Ltd (BOWL) is one of the most substantial private investments in the history of Scottish infrastructure and will power nearly half a million homes. Located around 13km off the Caithness coast, it is another example of the country spearheading international developments in renewable energy.

The £2.6 billion project is a collaboration between SSE (40%), Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) (35%) and Red Rock Power Limited (25%).
