ForeCoast® Marine appointed to support Inch Cape Offshore Wind Farm's installation phases

We have been appointed by Inch Cape Offshore Limited to inform the installation phases of the Inch Cape Offshore Wind Farm. Our strategic and operational planning software – ForeCoast® Marine – is being used to model and further understand the environmental impacts of the project’s installation operations.

The Inch Cape Offshore Wind Farm, currently in late-stage development, will see up to 72 turbines located 15 km off the Angus Coast and connect to the national electricity transmission network at Cockenzie, East Lothian. The project is a 50:50 joint venture between Red Rock Power Limited and Irish energy utility ESB, and secured a Contract for Difference in CfD Allocation Round 4 in July 2022. On completion it will be Scotland’s largest single renewable power source, generating the equivalent of the annual electricity needs of more than 1.7m British homes.

ForeCoast® Marine will simulate the project’s key asset-component installation phases, including foundations, inter-array cables, offshore substation platforms, export cables and wind turbine generators. Through these simulations, the performance of proposed strategies will be compared quickly and reliably against key metrics such as CAPEX and OPEX, programme and weather technical/logistical downtime. This will enable the project team to optimise its operations with its installation contractors.

ForeCoast® Marine will allow us to optimise the project’s installation strategies. The simulation software allows multiple strategies to be compared efficiently and will help us de-risk the key operations in a challenging and diverse environment.
