The first turbines were installed by Bold Tern some 22 kilometres off the Aberdeenshire coast during the second half of January.

The wind farm exported its first power to the national grid via its new substation south of New Deer in Aberdeenshire, Scotland on Saturday, 5 June.

The 950 MW wind farm is being developed by Moray Offshore Windfarm East Ltd (MOWEL), a joint venture company owned by Ocean Winds (56.6 per cent), Diamond Green Limited (33.4 per cent), and CTG (10 per cent),

The full commissioning is scheduled for 2022.
