The Anonymous Widower

Mona, Morgan And Morven

The title of this post, may sound like a high-class firm of Welsh solicitors, but it is actually the names of three wind farms to be constructed by BP Alternative Energy Investments Ltd and Energie Baden-Württemberg AG.

Mona And Morgan

This EnBW-BP infographic describes the project.

 

Mona and Morgan do seem to have web page, which gives a simple map and a rather jargon-filled timeline.

Morven

This EnBW-BP infographic describes the project.

Morven does seem to have a web page, which gives a simple map and this statement.

The Morven wind farm is named after a mountain situated in the beautiful hills of Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The name derives from the Scottish Gaelic terms “Mhor” and “bheinn” meaning ‘big’ and ‘peak’, symbolic of the scale of opportunity represented by bp’s latest offshore wind project.

This article on Offshore Engineer is entitled ScotWind: BP, EnBW Win Bid to Build 2.9GW Morven Offshore Wind Farm.

This paragraph described the Morven wind farm.

The approximately 860km2 lease is located around 60km off the coast of Aberdeen. The E1 lease is in an advantaged area, allowing the partners to develop it as a fixed-bottom offshore wind project with a total generating capacity of around 2.9 gigawatts (GW), sufficient to power more than three million homes.

And this paragraph, described what BP will do with the energy.

“Along with the offshore wind development, these investments include significant expansion of electric vehicle charging infrastructure in Scotland and green hydrogen production. Together, these represent up to £10 billion of investment in support of offshore wind and Scotland’s energy transition,” BP added.

These are two large projects, but so far there is little else on the Internet, except for this press release.

Conclusion

Wind farms can be controversial and for this and other reasons, the general public need more information.

BP and EnBW can do much better.

  1. At this rate it will not be limited by before the Irish Sea is on big wind farm.

    There are already big wind farms off the North Wales coast and Barrow.

    No doubt the Isle of Man Steam Packet will have some input in order to protect the ferry routes from Douglas to Heysham and Liverpool.

    Same for the ferries Stena line ferries from Liverpool to Belfast and P and O from Liverpool to Dublin.

    Also other Ro-Ro ferry routes from Heysham.

    • There are a lot of wind farms off the coast of East Anglia and in the Thames Estuary, do I suspect that shipping copes, as there don’t seem to be reports of giant container ships mowing the wind turbines down to size.
