SSE RENEWABLES: Increase In Overall Potential Project Capacity Identified For Ossian Wind Farm

4

Potential capacity output rises to up to 3.6GW following geophysical and benthic surveys

An increase in the potential overall project capacity from 2.6GW to up to 3.6GW has been identified for the proposed Ossian Wind Farm off the East Coast of Scotland, which if achieved, would put it among the top five largest floating offshore wind farms globally.

The Ossian project is being delivered by a partnership of leading Scottish renewable energy developer, SSE Renewables, Japanese conglomerate Marubeni Corporation (Marubeni) and Danish fund management company Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP).

In recent months the Ossian project completed a full geophysical and benthic survey of the project area. The data collected has informed a review of the potential wind farm capacity. Subject to undertaking the necessary further environmental and technical assessments, the site could be used to generate the increased capacity of up to 3.6GW.
