Aberdeen-based SeaEnergy said that its joint venture (JV) company Moray Offshore Renewables (MORL) has signed three agreements with the Crown Estate to develop three offshore wind farm sites in the Moray Firth off the coast of Scotland.
MORL’s proposed sites, to be named after Scottish engineers – Stevenson, MacColl and Telford, are within the Eastern Development area of Zone 1 of the Crown Estate’s third round offshore wind leasing program.
The three sites, which are expected to supply enough power for around 750,000 homes, will have a combined capacity between 1,000MW and 1,140MW.
The Eastern Development area is the first phase of a two-phase development plan for the zone, which together with the Western Development area will deliver around 1,500MW of capacity.
MORL is owned 25% by SeaEnergy Renewables and 75% by EDP Renewables.
