Buchan Offshore Wind has commenced scoping for its onshore grid works with the submission of its Onshore Scoping Report to Aberdeenshire Council.

The report sets out the project’s preferred export cable route, with the cable proposed to come ashore between Rattray Head and the St Fergus gas terminal. It also identifies two potential locations for the project’s onshore substation close to the existing SSEN Transmission substation to the southwest of Peterhead, where the project will connect to the national electricity transmission network.

The report sets out a corridor of potential routes for the onshore cable, which runs west from Rattray before heading south and passing to the west of Peterhead. This would be undergrounded along the entirety of its 21 km route.

The project has already received its Offshore Scoping Opinion and its Habitats Regulation Assessment Screening Opinion, and is working towards an application for consent in 2025.
