SSE Renewables has unveiled plans to combine two proposed offshore wind farms into one ‘super project’ development. The firm said that partnering Berwick Bank and Marr Bank into one facility known as Berwick Bank Wind Farm 40km off the east coast of Scotland would accelerate the country’s net zero ambitions. It added that, with a potential output of 4.1GW, the wind farm would more than double the size of current offshore wind in Scotland – increasing the country’s overall renewable energy capacity by nearly 30%, allowing for over five million homes to be powered. SSE said a planning application is expected to be lodged with the Scottish Government in spring 2022. If consented and greenlit for construction, the firm said it could begin generating clean energy in the second half of this decade.
