Planning and consenting

Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm Limited (AOWFL) has planning permission for onshore transmission works at Blackdog in Aberdeenshire to facilitate the export of electrical power generated from the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre to the national grid.

A comprehensive environmental appraisal was conducted to support the planning application and the resultant Environmental Report was submitted to Aberdeenshire Council alongside the planning application.
