Consultation: Mocean Energy Decommissioning Programme
Mocean Energy is undertaking a project funded by Wave Energy Scotland (WES) through its Novel WEC Programme to build and test at sea a 1/2-scale prototype of their M100 (100KW) wave energy converter (WEC). The 1/2 scale prototype is referred to as the M100P. Testing of the M100P is planned to be undertaken at EMEC’s Scapa Flow test site, Orkney in October 2020.
Mocean Energy have therefore requested consent from the regulator, Marine Scotland, to deploy and test the M100P. As part of the consenting process, a Decommissioning Programme must be produced and consulted on under the Energy Act 2004. EMEC has opened up a consultation on the Decommissioning Programme and would like to invite stakeholders and members of the public to provide responses including any concerns, via email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone +44 (0)1856 852060.
Please provide responses by 5pm Friday 11 September 2020.
All received consultation responses will be supplied to the regulator and considered during the decommissioning programme determination and approval process executed by Marine Scotland, on behalf of Scottish ministers.
