1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Onshore Environmental Statement: Non Technical Summary

    ICOL’s Offshore Wind Farm will be located across a 15 to 22 kilometres (km) range to the east of the Angus coastline in Scotland (see Figure 2). Transmission infrastructure will connect ICOL’s Offshore Wind Farm to the NETS and will comprise the OnTW and OfTW. The components and all permanent and temporary works required to generate or transmit electricity from ICOL’s Offshore Wind Farm to the national grid are grouped as follows:
