Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm Onshore Electricity Transmission Infrastructure PRE-APPLICATION PUBLIC CONSULTATION
Proposal: Planning permission in principle for an onshore substation, underground electricity cables and associated temporary and permanent infrastructure to export electricity from the Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm into the national electricity transmission system network on land adjacent to Cockenzie Substation, Cockenzie, East Lothian
The Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm in the outer Firth of Forth and Firth of Tay is consented for 150 wind turbines. Separate planning permission has already been secured to connect up to 114 wind turbines (1,075 MW) from the Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm to the national electricity transmission network at Tealing in Angus. National Grid, the national electricity transmission network operator, have provided a 360 MW connection offer at Cockenzie in East Lothian to connect the remaining (up to 3E) wind turbines.
Seagreen 1A Ltd (S1AL) intends to seek planning permission in principle for the onshore electricity transmission infrastructure to connect into the national electricity transmission network at Cockenzie. The proposed onshore electricity transmission infrastructure at Cockenzie will comprise underground electricity cables, a new substation and associated temporary and permanent ancillary works. A separate application will be submitted to Marine Scotland for the offshore electricity transmission infrastructure.
A virtual public exhibition on the proposals will be available online from Monday 11th January 2021 to Monday 1st February 2021 on the project website at
