Possible Wind Farms

In addition, these wind farms have been talked about and could possibly be developed.

  • Celtic Sea – Erebus – 100 MW Demonstration Project
  • Celtic Sea – Valorus – 300 MW Early-Commercial Project
  • Celtic Sea – Petroc – 300 MW Project
  • Celtic Sea – Llywelyn – 300 MW Project
  • Celtic Sea – Llŷr Wind – 100 MW Project
  • Celtic Sea – Llŷr Wind – 100 MW Project
  • Celtic Sea – Gwynt Glas – 1000 MW Project
  • Scotland – Salamander – 100 MW Project
  • Scotland – West of Orkney – 2000 MW Project
  • East Of Shetland – Map Reference 18 – 500 MW Project
  • East Of Shetland – Map Reference 19 – 1800 MW Project
  • East Of Shetland – Map Reference 20 – 500 MW Project
  • Shetland – Northern Horizon – 10000 MW Project
  • INTOG – Cerulean Winds – 6000 MW Project

These figures total 8700 MW, so by the early 2030s, it would not be unreasonable to see an offshore wind capacity of nearly 69000 MW or 69 GW.
