Located in the North Sea in the outer Firth of Forth, 40k off the East Lothian coast, Berwick Bank Offshore Wind Farm is one of the largest offshore opportunities in the world and can support the Scottish Government’s target to deliver Net Zero and 11GW of new offshore wind by 2030. How does such a development mitigate against its impact on the marine environment and bird life. A panel with representatives from SSE Renewables, and marine life and ocean conservation experts will explore the key issues.
