Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm
Located approximately 13 km from the Caithness coast on the northeast coast of Scotland, Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm became fully operational in June 2019, following seven years of development and three years of construction. Its 84 wind turbines are capable of providing enough wind powering electricity for up to 450,000 homes. With a capital expenditure of around £2.5bn, Beatrice is also one of the largest ever private investments in Scottish infrastructure.
A flexible and competitive solution
In 2015, Danske Commodities signed a 15-year Power Purchase agreement to handle all forecasting and trading for 294 MW, equivalent to 50% of Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm's production.
The Power Purchase Agreement was Danske Commodities’ first long-term balancing contract in the UK and builds on our experience in structuring PPAs in several European markets.
