Vestas selected for 1.1 GW Inch Cape offshore wind project in UK

Vestas V155-3.3 MW wind turbine

Inch Cape Offshore, a joint venture between Red Rock Power and ESB, has selected Vestas as the preferred wind turbine supplier for the 1.1 GW Inch Cape Offshore Wind Farm in Scotland.

Both Red Rock Power and ESB are Vestas clients for onshore wind projects.

The Inch Cape Offshore Wind Farm project, located 15 km off the Angus Coast on the East of Scotland, will feature 72 V236-15.0 MW turbines. The agreement also includes a 15-year Operations and Maintenance (O&M) contract.

Inch Cape Offshore secured a Contract for Difference in the UK’s fourth CfD allocation round, which concluded on July 7, 2022, and recently announced the Renewables Hub at the Port of Dundee as its intended pre-assembly site and the Port of Montrose as the project’s O&M base.
