The proposed Inch Cape offshore wind farm is located in the North Sea around 15 km off the Angus coastline and will connect to the grid at the former Cockenzie Coal Power station site in East Lothian via dual 85km export cables.

The project, owned by Inch Cape Offshore Limited (ICOL) – a subsidiary of Red Rock Power – is currently under development and is expected to enter onshore construction in early 2021, and offshore in late 2021. ICOL is continuing to consider opportunities to optimise the development and improve efficiency and will share further updates regarding next steps as it continues to progress towards construction.

The project represents an important investment in Scotland’s energy infrastructure and will power over half a million homes, supporting the Government’s low carbon energy targets whilst providing economic opportunities for Scottish communities.
