Pentland Floating Offshore Wind Farm will test and demonstrate new technology solutions for floating offshore wind in Scotland.

The full website is currently under construction and will be launched soon. A short summary of the project is provided below.


About the Project

Pentland Floating Offshore Wind Farm will be located approximately 6.5 km off the coast of Dounreay, Caithness and will deploy a maximum of ten wind turbines with an installed capacity of up to 100 megawatts (MW).


The innovations and technology trialled in this project will be key to the development of large scale floating offshore wind in Scotland and will create significant opportunities for the local and national economy.


Pentland Floating Offshore Wind Farm is being developed by Highland Wind Limited which is majority owned by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) with Hexicon AB as a minority shareholder. CIP is a fund management company focused on energy infrastructure including offshore wind, onshore wind, solar PV, biomass and energy-from-waste, transmission and distribution, and other energy assets like reserve capacity and storage. Project development activities are being led by CIP’s development partner, Copenhagen Offshore Partners (COP). The project development team is based in COP’s Global Floating Wind Competence Centre, recently established in Edinburgh.
