The Project

  • 1.2 GW

  • 280 km2

Bellrock Offshore Wind Farm will be located in the North Sea, 120 km east of Stonehaven in Aberdeenshire.

With a proposed installed capacity of 1.2 GW, Bellrock Offshore Wind Farm presents a great opportunity to deliver significant supply chain investment within Scotland.

Bellrock will have the potential to supply enough renewable electricity to power over 1.1 million homes* and avoid the production of over 1.8 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per year*.

The continued development of offshore wind within Scotland, including the advancement of floating wind farms in deeper waters further offshore is therefore critical to ensuring that Scotland and the UK can meet their binding renewable energy and climate change targets.

We are working collaboratively with other developers across the region to collect and share environmental data.

This approach will enable us to refine Bellrock’s design and bring forward a more environmentally friendly design.

Bellrock will export electricity to SSE Networks Transmission offshore substation.

It is proposed that Bellrock will have between 42 and 80 wind turbine generators (depending on turbine capacity). The project design options being considered include wind turbine generators with floating substructures and/or fixed bottom substructures and a range of associated station keeping systems (including mooring lines and anchors).  Consideration is also being given to the design of the offshore substation and offshore export cable.

Refinement of these project options will continue through the design process, and in conjunction with the environmental impact assessment.
