29 Apr 2022: In accordance with the regulations Forthwind Ltd is seeking Section 36, section 36A and Marine Licence consent . The application excludes the onshore infrastructure associated with the Proposed Development, which will be subject to a separate planning application to the Local Planning Authority (Fife Council). One Demonstration offshore wind turbine and sub-structure with an installed capacity of up to 20MW. The turbine will have 3 blades with a maximum turbine hub height of 156 m above Highest Astronomical Tide (HAT). The sub-structure will include the foundations and jacket (depending on foundation-type), with a maximum height to blade tip of up to 280.0 above HAT; - An electricity export cable corridor, within which cable will be laid in a trench measuring approximately 1500 m in length. This will contain the cable that transmits the electricity generated by the turbine to the onshore transformer - One Meteorological Mast (metmast) and sub-structure comprising a lattice steel tower located at BNG 337314, 696959. A 100 m micrositing allowance from the centre point for the metmast and associated infrastructure is required for the final selection of metmast location. - A communications cable approximately 625 m in length, comprising a 20 mm2 fibre optic cable, running alongside power cable will be located between the turbine and the metmast.
