Plans are being prepared for a floating offshore wind farm consisting of up to 10 turbines off the north coast at Dounreay. The structures could be taller than those at the existing Beatrice offshore wind farm in the outer Moray Firth, and closer to the shore. The development would be located around 10km from the Dounreay site, with an installed capacity of up 100 megawatts, and would be an update on the previous Dounreay Trì project. The aim would be “to test and demonstrate a technology solution for floating offshore wind in Scotland”, according to a briefing note seen by the John O’Groat Journal.
