Dundee to be hub for Scotland’s largest offshore site

[ August 31, 2022   //   ]

The Port of Dundee has been chosen as the pre-assembly and marshalling site for the 1.1GW Inch Cape Offshore Wind Farm.

Turbine blades, towers and nacelles will be delivered to and pre-assembled at the port’s Renewables Hub before being shipped out for installation 12km off the Angus coast.

Forth Ports-owned  Dundee was chosen after a competitive selection process due to its proximity to the project site, coupled with its storage and assembly capacity and purpose-built quayside facilities. 

The project will be Scotland’s largest single source of renewable power when built and will feature the tallest turbines ever deployed in Scottish waters, with tip heights of up to 291 metres.

Inch Cape Offshore Limited has reserved the entire Renewables Hub at the port, equivalent to 28 football pitches, from March 2025 to March 2026, with around 50 staff expected to be on site over that time.
