PROPOSALS to connect part of Scotland’s largest offshore windfarm to the National Grid at Cockenzie are revealed this week.

The Seagreen project, based 66 kilometres off the East Lothian coastline, will have 150 wind turbines.

Developers claim the scheme will generate enough renewable energy each year to provide power to up to 1.3 million homes.

Already, 114 of the consented turbines have a grid connection into Tealing, between Dundee and Forfar, with construction on that phase of the project starting last year.

Seagreen Wind Energy Ltd, owned by SSE Renewables and Total, is hoping to see the remaining 36 turbines connected to the grid at Cockenzie.

Members of the public will be able to view a virtual public exhibition from Monday at

The project team will also be available online for live chat noon 2.30pm and 6-8.30pm next Monday (January 18).
