Local people across Aberdeenshire will have the opportunity to get involved and have their say on the proposed MarramWind floating offshore windfarm when the first phase of statutory consultation gets underway later this month.


The consultation will run from Monday 27 May until Sunday 1 July, with public drop-in events and online Q&A sessions being held across May and June:

Public drop-ins

Thursday 6 June 2024, 1pm to 7pm ­– Palace Hotel, Prince Street, Peterhead AB42 1PL
Friday 7 June 2024, 1pm to 7pm – Longside Parish Hall, 4-13 Inn Brae, Longside, Peterhead AB42 4XN

Online Q&A events

Thursday 30 May, 6pm to 7pm
Wednesday 26 June, 6pm to 7pm

A virtual exhibition will also run online throughout the consultation period.

MarramWind Project Director, Richard Eakin, said: “One year on from our very first public information event in Peterhead, it’s great to launch the first stage of statutory public consultation for this exciting project.

“We want to give as many people as possible a chance to see what we have planned and to get their feedback on our proposals, so we’ve made it as easy as possible to get involved with face-to-face events as well as live online events and a virtual exhibition. Hopefully, there will be something for everyone!

“This project has the potential to be a real game changer for the north-east – providing a great green generation boost as well as delivering investment, jobs and supply chain growth. While we’re at the early stages of development, we want to know what people think so we can take that on board as we move forward, so please take part.”

A joint ScottishPower and Shell project, MarramWind could be one of the first commercial-scale floating offshore windfarms in the world. Located 75km off the north-east coast of Aberdeenshire and with a proposed capacity of 3 GW, it could produce enough homegrown green electricity to power the equivalent of more than 3.5 million homes.
