Ossian Offshore Wind Farm

Born from Scotwind

SSE Renewables Limited, Marubeni Corporation, and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners are combining their local experience and extensive global expertise in the development of the Ossian Offshore Wind Farm.

With a potential capacity of up to 3.6GW, Ossian will become one of the world's largest floating offshore wind farms.

Following the success in the Scotwind leasing round, the  project team are progressing with the development of 858 square kilometres of seabed in the Firth of Forth off the Angus Coast -  one of the largest lease areas to be offered by Crown Estate Scotland to any bidder.

With average water depths of 72m, the site is suitable for the deployment of floating offshore wind turbines to deliver up to 3.6GW of new installed capacity – enough to be capable of powering almost *6 million Scottish homes annually and ^offsetting up to 7.5 million tonnes of carbon emissions each year.

The development of Ossian continues, targeting first generation before the end of the decade.
