1. ICOL submits new application for Offshore Wind Farm

    23 August 2018

    Inch Cape Offshore Limited (ICOL) has submitted a new application for consent to Marine Scotland to develop an offshore wind farm 15km off the Angus coast. The application and supporting Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) marks another step forward for the project following the launch of a site investigation in July.

  2. Summer 2018 Site Investigation Works

    16 July 2018

    From July to October, ICOL will be carrying out geophysical and geotechnical site investigations to further improve our understanding of the seabed conditions throughout the site. The works are being carried out in the Development Area and Offshore Export Cable Corridor of the proposed Inch Cape Offshore Wind Farm located within the Outer Firth of Tay and Firth of Forth.

  3. Lighthouse Lidar Lights Up Offshore Wind Farm Plans With Zero Downtime

    18 June 2018

    Details of a novel three year project to enhance the energy assessment and revenue forecasting for the proposed Inch Cape Offshore Wind Farm 15km off the Angus coast in the East of Scotland demonstrates significant benefits of adopting bespoke technology to gather data. A ZephIR wind Lidar system was installed on an existing lighthouse structure thanks to a custom-built solution developed by SgurrEnergy (now Wood). This innovative solution not only negated the need for an independent offshore structure but the Lidar also took a comprehensive data set at heights from its installed location up to the projected turbine height, required no servicing and reported no major faults for the duration of the project. The project was carried out in cooperation with the Northern Lighthouse Board.

  4. ICOL continues to engage with onshore community

    14 May 2018

    In recent weeks following the Scottish Government’s decision to call-in ICOL’s onshore application for planning permission in principle, the project team has continued to engage with the local community. As well as meeting with the East Lothian Council, the team have also met with both Prestonpans and Port Seton & Cockenzie Community Councils, and local MSPs to discuss how best to work together moving forward to achieve best use of the land at the former Cockenzie Power Station.
