Renewable energy consultancy Natural Power says it has provided consent support for the 1.1 GW Moray offshore wind farm. The project, located off the Caithness coast in Scotland, recently received approval in the Crown Estate's Round 3 process.

Renewables Ltd., a joint venture between EDP Renewables and Repsol Nuevas Energias UK, appointed Natural Power as lead ornithology and marine mammal advisor during the scoping, environmental impact assessment and post-submission consultation stages of the projects’ development in August 2010.

Chris Pendlebury, Natural Power’s lad ornithological advisor on the project, comments, “Our experts have worked on this project for four years, utilizing their experience and expertise to provide industry leading analysis and advice to our client. It is great to see a project of this scale achieve consent in Scotland.”
