Total operational capacity


Seagreen is Scotland's largest offshore wind farm, has the deepest fixed bottom foundations of any wind farm in the world and was one of the largest construction projects ever undertaken in Scotland.

It is located around 27km off the coast of Angus in the North Sea and is a £3bn joint venture between TotalEnergies (51%) and SSE Renewables (49%).

SSE Renewables led the development and construction of the joint venture project, supported by TotalEnergies, and is operating Seagreen during it's operational lifetime.

First power was achieved in August 2022 and Seagreen became fully operational in October 2023.

Seagreen is capable of generating enough green energy to power more than 1.6 million homes, equivalent to two-thirds of all Scottish homes. Seagreen is able to displace over 2 million tonnes of carbon dioxide from electricity generated by fossil fuels every year – which is similar to removing more than a third of all of Scotland’s annual car emissions and making a significant contribution to Scotland’s net-zero ambition by 2045*.

Seagreen secured a 15-year CfD contract in 2019, for 454MW and the Final Investment Decision was reached on 3 June 2020 providing the green light for construction to begin.

Foundation installation commenced in October 2021 followed by the installation of the Vestas V164-10 MW turbines which began in December 2021.

Port of Nigg

Seagreen supported up to 141 skilled jobs at Global Energy Group’s Port of Nigg in Tain near Inverness, Scotland for the marshalling, storage and logistics of the 114 wind turbine foundations destined for Seagreen.

The 141 jobs included work for 93 permanent roles already on-site as well as the creation of an additional 48 new roles which have been recruited at the port, delivering a green jobs boost to the Scottish Highlands.

Delivering for people and businesses



Up to 30 new jobs were created with local Angus contracting firm Pert-Bruce during construction of the Seagreen Operations & Maintenance (O&M) base at Montrose Port.

The O&M base will be home to approximately 80 full-time (direct) operational roles including up to 60 Vestas personnel working to maintain the turbines both from the O&M base and on offshore 'Service Operations Vessels'.
