Kincardine - phase 1 Floating Wind Farm

31 Dec 2021: Update April 2021: The initial 2 MW turbine is due to be reinstalled as KIN-06 in 2021(dependent on recertification and consultation). If Turbine 1 is not re-deployed within 6 months, it will be decommissioned. The initial period sought for such certification / verification / suitable agreed alternative of the WTG platform substructure for Turbine 1 (2MW) will be limited to be three years or less. This is due to the engineering life of the substructure (ten years from initial substructure construction in 2011). At the expiry of the WTG platform substructure certification, Turbine 1 will only be re-deployed if (i) the platform structure is recertified following inspection (and only for so long as valid certification is in place) and (ii) if Marine Scotland (in consultation with SNH, Historic Environment Scotland, Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council) is satisfied that the re-deployment at the proposed location within the Site would not give rise to new or materially different likely significant effects to those identified in the seascape, landscape and visual assessment of the Variation Environmental Statement .
