PEOPLE, PROJECTS & TECHNOLOGY: Glasgow renewables firm helps get Galloper off and running

The Glasgow-based Sgurr Energy renewables consultancy has supported the Galloper offshore wind farm – which will be located 27km off the coast of Suffolk and generate up to 336MW – to reach financial close.

The wind farm will generate enough clean energy for up to 336,000 homes and will support around 700 jobs during construction and around 100 jobs once operational.

The Wood Group company conducted technical due diligence providing initial bankability feedback to th developer, which was then followed by the successful completion of a detailed technical due diligence report for the benefit of the project lenders.

Toby Edmonds, Project Director, Galloper Wind Farm, said: “This announcement underlines that the UK is still a strong market for offshore renewables and we’re delighted to be taking the project forward with our new project partners and investors.”
