Offshore construction gets underway at the site of NnG, 15,5km off the Fife coast.
A dedicated office is opened in Edinburgh for the growing NnG project team who will build the wind farm. NnG achieves financial close meaning construction can start on the project.
Scottish Ministers granted consent for NnG to be constructed using higher capacity turbines, generating the same 450MW output but using 54 instead of 75 turbines. EDF Renewables UK acquired NnG.
The initial decision was appealed by Scottish Ministers and the Inner House ultimately overturned the original decision, resulting in the reinstatement of the consents clearing the way for NnG to proceed to the construction phase.
The RSPB’s concerns were initially upheld in a decision of the Outer House of the Scottish Court of Session.
NnG successfully won a Contract for Difference (CfD) from the UK Government through a highly competitive auction.
Original offshore consent received from Scottish Ministers.
NnG reached a significant milestone when East Lothian Council (ELC) granted planning permission for the onshore works required to connect the 450MW wind farm to the national grid.
The original consent application was submitted to Marine Scotland Licensing Operations Team (MS-LOT). This application was a major milestone towards delivering the project.
