- International Public Partnerships (INPP) says that Ofgem has published a notice under Section 8A of the Electricity Act 1989 on 9 June 2021 relating to the Beatrice Offshore Transmission project, which is a key step towards reaching financial close on the investment that INPP expects to make in the project. INPP expects to invest around £ 50 million into the project upon financial close, which is anticipated to be in July 2021. The project will be the Company’s eighth Offshore Transmission project investment and relates to the transmission cable connection to the offshore wind farm located in the Outer Moray Firth, approximately 13.5km off the Caithness coastline in Scotland. The wind farm consists of 84 x 7MW wind turbine generators with an installed capacity of 588MW connected to two offshore substation platforms (‘OSP’) located within the boundaries of the Beatrice wind farm. It is Scotland’s largest operational offshore wind farm. The Beatrice OFTO will transmit green electricity equivalent to around 450,000 UK homes, increasing the number of homes that are powered by the Company’s OFTO portfolio to approximately 1.8 million homes.
