Scottish Borders Council’s planning committee has approved plans jointly submitted by Neart na Gaoithe Offshore Wind Limited and Eyemouth Harbour Trust for an Operations and Maintenance building for the offshore wind farm in Eyemouth. A significant milestone for NnG, jointly owned by EDF Renewables and ESB, this development sees Eyemouth Harbour move a step closer to housing the project’s O&M base. The planning permission is for a new, three storey, 1,040 square metre main building and a two storey, 538 square metre storage warehouse.

The O&M building, designed by Corstorphine + Wright Architects, will house the office, warehousing and staff welfare facilities required to support the servicing of NnG once the wind farm is operational.

The investment in Eyemouth will bring an economic boost to the area providing up to 50 permanent jobs over the 25-year lifespan of the project. Additional benefits would see training, retraining and apprenticeship opportunities available to the residents of Eyemouth and the surrounding area.

NnG will supply enough low carbon electricity for around 375,000* homes and has a capacity of c. 450 megawatts (MW) of low carbon energy and will offset over 400,000 tonnes of Co2 emissions each year.
