SSE Renewables and DECC Visit the Board 28/02/2012

The Annual Board Away Day took place last week and as part of a full programme, we were pleased to welcome presentations from Sol Judah, Offshore Engineering Manager for SSE Renewables and Bill Cattanach, Head of PILOT Secretariat, Department of Energy & Climate Change.
The Cromarty Firth Market Assessment and Development Plan by DTZ Transmodal published in January 2010, followed by the draft 20 year master plan by CFPA, touched upon decommissioning as a sector for consideration. The facilities in the Firth already have proven experience in this arena, as is visually represented by the Hutton TLP currently anchored in the Firth.

With 4 fields approved for decommissioning in 2011 and a further 4 on track for 2012, the potential for this sunrise business opportunity will grow. OGUK decommissioning survey gathered firm information on £3.3 billion expenditure in the UKCS, approximately 2/3 of the £3.3 billion expenditure is expected in the northern North Sea, making the deep water Port facilities in the Cromarty Firth ideally situated.
The Cromarty Firth is also the closest deep water Port to the Beatrice and Moray Offshore Wind farms. The outline scope for the Beatrice wind farm should be in the region of 80-150 wind turbines, depending on final field size. The level of expertise available through the Supply Chain will be among the deciding factors for companies when deciding on what Port can offer them the best facilities.
