bp and EnBW have submitted their Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) scoping report for the Morven offshore wind farm array project to the Scottish Government’s Marine Directorate. The array project includes wind turbines, associated support structures and foundations, inter-array cables, inter-connector cables, Offshore Substation Platforms (OSPs), associated support structures and foundations.
