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 100 kW wave energy converter called Blue X. Testing of the Blue X is planned to commence at EMEC’s Billia Croo test site, Orkney after testing at EMEC’s Scapa Flow test site.
Mocean Energy have therefore requested consent from the regulator, Marine Scotland, to deploy and test the Blue X. 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 14 June 2021.
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.
