British Energy Advising on Wind Farm Development Orkney Islands

Overview

British Energy (and joint partner venture AMEC) were planning to construct and operate a major wind farm at a site on the Orkney Islands. The companies were seeking initial legal advice for the project before seeking planning permission & national grid connection agreements.

Strategy

We advised British Energy on the planning process including the law and policy framework, particularly focusing on the Government’s support of Renewable Energy Projects. We considered the feasibility of the project on the basis of the site selected.

Outcome

Our advice greatly assisted British Energy in selecting their site, addressing local and national planning policies.
