In Scotland we have world class test and demonstration facilities which enable technology developers to install single or multiple machines in a variety of site conditions. To complement these, we offer the opportunity to access seabed for wave and tidal current projects of up to 30 MW. Applications can be made at any time until further notice.
Forthwind project variation and option period extension
Crown Estate Scotland has entered into discussions with Forthwind Ltd around a project variation and option period extension request related to the seabed rights for development of a wind test and demonstration site close to the coastline of Methil in Fife.
The project change requested is to vary the existing technology plan which was for 2 x 6MW 2-bladed wind turbines to allow for a single 3 bladed wind turbine up to 14MW.
The option period extension request for the single turbine is for four years and would take the option to 15 September 2022.
The discussions with Crown Estate Scotland cover seabed rights only, planning consents are managed by the regulator, Marine Scotland, and Forthwind Ltd have had early engagement with Marine Scotland regarding next steps.
