The Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm was developed as a joint venture partnership between SSE Renewables and Repsol Nuevas Energias UK. In February 2009, the JVCo was awarded an exclusivity agreement by the Crown Estate to develop the Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm in Scottish Territorial Waters. Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners acquired a 25% stake in the £3billion Beatrice project in November 2014 from the sponsor SSE Renewables.
Our key role was full technical due diligence including;
- review of environmental and planning compliance;
- electrical and structural/ foundation design;
- wind yield analysis;
- metocean and seabed conditions;
- marine logistics.
The 664MW Beatrice Offshore Windfarm is located in the Outer Moray Firth on the north-western point of the Smith Bank. It is approximately 13.5km from the Caithness coastline. The development site will cover an approximate area of 131.5km², with water depths of up to 48m.
