The 1,075 MW Seagreen offshore wind farm produced its first power on Monday after the first of a total of 114 turbines had been commissioned.

The wind farm is located 27km off the coast of Angus in Scotland. The aim is to be fully operational in the first half of 2023. The £3bn Seagreen project will be Scotland’s largest offshore wind farm and the world’s deepest fixed bottom wind farm as it is being developed in water depths of up to 59 meters. Once fully operational, the site will produce around 5 TWh of renewable electricity per year, enough to power the equivalent of 1.6 million households.

“We are delighted to announce the start of power generation from Seagreen, our first offshore wind steps in the UK North Sea” said Vincent Stoquart, Senior Vice President Renewables at TotalEnergies. “This marks a new step in the development of TotalEnergies’ offshore activities capacity. This milestone will contribute directly to our objective of reaching 35 GW of renewable electricity capacity worldwide by 2025.”

Paul Cooley, Director of Offshore Wind, SSE Renewables said: "We often talk about key milestones along a project’s journey, and Seagreen has had a number to date, but to see this turbine turning in the North Sea and to have reached first power safely, is a fantastic achievement for everyone connected to the project. The project has already brought several benefits to the local community, the UK supply chain and, once completed, Seagreen will make a significant contribution to Scotland and the UK’s ambitious renewable energy targets.”
