1. Onshore Community Consultation June 2017

    ICOL was initially granted planning permission in principle by East Lothian Council in September 2014 for onshore transmission works between Prestonpans and Cockenzie. In recognition of feedback from community engagement events, ICOL is promoting a change in location for the onshore works and is taking forward a new planning application for this to be located on the site of the former Cockenzie Power Station. The purpose of the planning application is to seek permission to develop the onshore transmission works. The consultation event was held to ensure the community is informed and given the opportunity to contribute views which will be included as part of the planning application submitted to East Lothian Council. Once the final details of the onshore transmission works are known, ICOL will go through a further application process with East Lothian Council for detailed planning permission.

  2. Onshore Community Consultation

    ICOL was established to develop and operate an offshore wind farm located off the Angus coastline and is wholly owned by Red Rock Power Limited. It was initially granted planning permission in principle by East Lothian Council in September 2014 for onshore transmission works between Prestonpans and Cockenzie, which it intends to renew with a new application. The purpose of the renewal application is to seek an extension to the time limit set to move to the next phase of detailed planning in the development of the onshore transmission works. The consultation event was held to ensure the community is informed and given the opportunity to contribute views which will be included as part of the planning application submitted to East Lothian Council. Once the final details of the onshore transmission works are known, ICOL will go through a further application process with East Lothian Council for detailed planning permission.

  3. Transponder Mandatory Zone

    ICOL, jointly with Neart na Gaoithe Offshore Wind Limited (NNGOWL), intends to submit an application to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) for the implementation of a Transponder Mandatory Zone (TMZ) in the airspace surrounding the wind farm. The purpose of this TMZ is to mitigate the impact of the wind turbines on the Air Traffic Control Primary Surveillance Radar at RAF Leuchars.

    Inch Cape Offshore Limited (ICOL) is applying to East Lothian Council (ELC) for Planning Permission in Principle (PPP) under the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997 (as amended) (Scottish Parliament, 1997) for an onshore substation, electricity cables and associated infrastructure, (the Onshore Transmission Works (OnTW)), required to connect the Inch Cape Offshore Wind Farm to the National Electricity Transmission System (NETS). ICOL accepted an onshore grid connection offer from National Grid Electricity Transmission in January 2012 for 1,050 Megawatts with a connection point at the existing substation at Cockenzie.

  5. Onshore Environmental Statement: Non Technical Summary

    Inch Cape Offshore Wind Farm will be located across a 15 to 22 kilometres (km) range to the east of the Angus coastline in Scotland. It has a grid connection agreement for 1,050 MW. Transmission infrastructure will connect the Inch Cape Offshore Wind Farm to the National Electricity Transmission System (NETS) and will constitute the Onshore Transmission Works (OnTW) and Offshore Transmission Works (OfTW). Collectively the Inch Cape Offshore Wind Farm, OnTW and OfTW are referred to as the Project.
