Plans for a floating offshore wind farm off the north coast of Scotland that appeared to have fallen by the wayside have resurfaced. Danish investment company Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) has breathed new life into the proposed Dounreay Tri project, located about 3 miles off Caithness. The proposed 100 megawatt (MW) floating wind farm would consist of between six to 10 turbines and would act as a test bed for new technologies. In order to advance the North Sea project, CIP has set up a “special purpose vehicle” called Highland Wind Limited. The company has a registered office in Edinburgh. The proposals are an “update” to and would share the same location as the Dounreay Tri project, which was given “key consents” and a site lease in 2017.
