TotalEnergies inaugurated Scotland's largest offshore wind farm. Located 27 km off the coast of Angus in Scotland, the first turbine in the Seagreen offshore wind farm has been generating electricity since August 2022. As all 114 turbines are up and running since October 2023, the wind farm provides enough green energy to power more than 1.6 million homes, equivalent to two-thirds of all Scottish homes. Ultimately, the green electricity generated by Seagreen will displace over 2 million tonnes of carbon dioxide from electricity generated by fossil fuels every year.
In addition, the Seagreen wind farm is also the world's deepest fixed bottom wind farm. It is part of a number of offshore wind projects that are currently being developed in the UK (West of Orkney, Erebus, Outer Dowsing) in which TotalEnergies has held interests since 2020. With a total capacity of approximately 5.5 GW, they will all be commissioned between 2023 and 2031, and will enable TotalEnergies to ramp up its green electricity production while contributing to the fight against global warming.
