Project Description

Published April 2020

Vekta Group was pleased to be working with Offshore Wind Consultants on a Grid capacity study for the upcoming Scotwind leasing rounds for offshore wind.  The primary scope of work for Vekta Group has been to provide grid and electrical support for OWC.

Scope of work included various core activities depending on the client needs:

  • Assessment of current grid connection capacity for each region associated with a Scotwind development zone
  • Analysis of the National Grid 10 year statement and Network Options Assessment
  • Develop future grid connection capacity options and risk profile report for Scotwind

Scotwind new leasing rounds are ongoing for the foreseeable future, each with differing timescales, but Vekta Group is working to support clients within the current  government programme and beyond once new leases are awarded.  Vekta Group’s work was led by Charles Balderston.
