Offshore Wind & The Moray Firth

Caithness Renewables maintains up to date data on offshore wind developments in the UK, with details of procurement routes, tender progress and supply chain initiatives.

Offshore wind has been heralded as a great opportunity for Scotland to capitalise on new jobs, secure export markets and sell our skills. Seabed leasing rounds from The Crown Estate have seen developers secure options to develop substantial offshore wind schemes far out at sea in the relative calm of the Moray Firth. East coast harbours such as Wick are ideally placed to service these schemes, both during construction and the operational phase, with the Global Energy takeover of Nigg a significant step forward for the north of Scotland.

 

Wick Harbour

Wick is strategically placed to support the developing Offshore Renewable industry in the Moray Firth, Pentland Firth and Orkney Waters.

Wick harbour’s closeness to the Moray Firth sees it already chosen as the Operations and Maintenance hub to support the Beatrice Offshore Windfarm having signed a 25 year agreement with BOWL.   Wick harbour hopes to see more traffic in the future with future developments in the sector potentially in the Moray Firth and the East of Orkney.

Scrabster Harbour

Scrabster Harbour’s position on the north coast of Caithness gives it a competitive advantage to serve the marine renewable energy’s  emerging sectors in the Pentland Firth and   Orkney Waters.

Engineering skills are readily available in Caithness, with a community keen to transition its workforce into this exciting industry.

Caithness Renewables is involved in supply chain activity in offshore wind and across renewables generally. We use our knowledge of the supply chain and developers to support market research, lead generation and other supportive activity.

We are supportive of Moray Offshore Renewables Ltd and Beatrice Offshore Wind Ltd.
