Throughout the previous consultations, the project developers received valuable feedback from the local community and other stakeholders on the project. This feedback has been reviewed carefully to consider how the project design could be refined.

Key changes include:

  • reducing the offshore site area for the turbines by 50% and
  • reducing the number of turbines in the design envelope from ten to seven.

With the reduction in the offshore site area for the turbines, the horizontal spread of the turbines will be reduced. This will reduce the potential visual impacts of the wind farm which will be located in the north of Scotland.

The changes demonstrate the developers dedication to ensuring that the Pentland Floating Offshore Wind Farm is developed in an environmentally sensitive way, remains considerate of the concerns of the community, and is complementary to our proposed community benefit fund which will help to ensure local residents benefit economically and socially from the project.
